Boiled Green Peanuts is something my husband dearly loves. He's never meet a nut he didn't like. But, Boiled Green Peanuts he loves, and, I really like them too. Our families used to grow home grown peanuts. They are really tasty....Trust me.
1Wash green peanuts in sink agaitator style to get all dirt off the peanuts. Rinse clean.
2Place peanuts in a very large pot; add enough water to cover the peanuts by 1-2 inches. Add the salt and stir well.
3Bring Peanuts, salt, and water to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook until done. Test for doneness after 4 hours. The peanuts should have a soft but not a mushy texture. Cook and test up to 6 hours. May need to add a little water,if you do stir the water to properly mix salt.
4When correct texture is reached, remove from heat and drain off the brime. DO NOT ALLOW PEANUTS TO SIT IN THE BRIME IT WILL CAUSE PEANUTS TO BE TOO SALTY. REFRIGERATE.
