DIRECTIONS

  • Pour green peanuts into very large stockpot.
  • Fill with water, until pot is about 2/3 full leaving enough room for the pot to boil without overflowing.
  • Pour in salt and stir into water.
  • Turn on high heat and bring water to a boil.
  • Turn heat on low or med-low and keep it at a low boil or simmer.
  • Cook 10-12 hours slowly, stirring occasionally and taste water to see if salt is needed.
  • Turn off heat and allow to soak for an hour or two. Soaking allows the peanuts to really get the brine taste.
  • Reheat when you are ready to eat.
