- you can add other seasonings as you fancy. i like to make mine spicy by adding crushed red peppers.
GRANDMA'S BOILED PEANUTS
But I digress...
Put your water, salt, and peanuts in a large stockpot or crock pot.
Bring to a boil. Cover. Boil for 2 to 3 hours or longer until peanuts reach desired level of softness.
For crock pot:
Add all ingredients and cover. I leave my crock on all day long at a low/medium heat. Depending on the desired softness, you can alter this to your liking.
Enjoy them! Make sure to refrigerate any you do not eat right away. They will keep in the fridge for about 3 days or so.
