was a bit amazed upon going to texas for the kids basic training graduation that the natives had not had boiled peanuts. Never thought of it as being a regional thing lol We turned texas on to em!! I spent more time at the campground making these for the family reunion that adopted us into the family then I did floating lazily in the Guadalupe river
1wash in shell peanuts thoroughly . Place in dutch over , Pour salt on , pour in beer and then fill to cover nuts with water. If you use cajun spices omit 1/2 cu of salt and add 1/2 c of the spice.. It sounds like a lot of salt but trust me.. you may even want to add more.
2bring to boil.. once its boiled for 2 - 5 minutes.. cover reduce heat and cook away for 8 hours.. if water boils down this is a great time to add another beer or more water
3peanuts are done when the nut is soft VERY soft some can take up to 10 hours..
these can be done in a crock pot too..
