boiled peanuts ?

How do you boil peanuts; for how long, how much water over them?

4-5 pounds of green peanuts in shell
4-6 quarts of water
1 cup salt

Wash the peanuts in cold water until the water runs clear.

soak them in cold water for half an hour.

Put 'em in a large pot, cover completely with water, cook 4-7 hours on high. Taste after 4 hours, then every 10 minutes after that until they're right. Drain them immediately after cooking.

Peel and eat hot, cold, chilled, or drop into a bottle of (I swear I am not making this up) RC Cola and drink the results for that traditional southern taste.

Pardon me, but why the hell would you boil peanuts? What does it do to them?

Makes them soft and salty. Not my cup of tea, to be honest, but a lot of southerners swear by them.

It's the caviar of the south, didn't you know? :P

I don't know about them being the "caviar of the south", but they're pretty darn tasty!!!

My father has been boiling peanuts for as long as I can remember. My father in law does too, for that matter.

Shakran's recipe above is pretty much dead-on as to how they do it. I prefer roasted and salted peanuts in my RC Cola, however!!

Did you not read the Deep South thread? Everything needed about boiled peanuts is there.
Speaking of which...my sister is mailing me several pounds of peanuts to boil. Can I get a Hooray!

And Sultana is right...they are the caviar of the south. Any southerner who's anyone knows that.
