This is the real deal that is found in the heart of Florida. I made this recipe to resemble the taste of my favorite boiled peanuts found in the Ocala National Forest. My family agreed this recipe was one of the best!

Hi, this is Rachael. I read some of the recent reviews and I feel that's it's unfair to poorly rate this recipe if you don't like the consistentcy of boiled peanuts! This isn't to make crunchy, roasted peanuts, its for soft, boiled peanuts! For the rest of you, I am so THRILLED that ya'll have enjoyed this recipe!

This is just like Florida Peanuts :) Heres a trick - to not have to waith the 24 hours, put the whole mix in a pressure cooker, cook for 45 minutes on medium high pressure. Then, transfer to crock pot for 2 hours - you have your peanuts in 3 hours! Thanks so much for this - my fam loves them

I am so happy I found this recipe!!! I recently moved to NY from FL, and needless to say there's more different than alike up here. I miss my spicy boiled peanuts from the roadside stand, and these are DYNO-MITE! The longer you let them sit on low in the crock pot, the better! I followed everything to a T, and I used the recipe on here for cajun seasoning (and had a little left over for the next batch!): 1 tablespoon salt 1-1/4 teaspoons dried oregano 1-1/4 teaspoons paprika 1-1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper 1-1/4 teaspoons ground black pepper EDIT: I made these for superbowl, and used sliced brined jalapenos and a bottle of beer and they were excellent!!!!!!!!
