DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse all dirt off of peanuts inside of sink and drain.
  • Place peanuts inside a large pot that leaves about 4 to 6 inches of room at the top of the pot.
  • Cover peanuts with water leaving until the peanuts float to within 2 inches from the top of the pot.
  • Add salt. A good hint is that all the salt you add will not be directly absorbed by the peanuts. So you can be generous.
  • Bring to a rigorous boil and continue until soft. The time to boil depends on the peanuts and I think it is best done outside.
  • Allow peanuts to absorb brine untill desired salty taste. About 1 hour +or -.
