“This recipe comes from the peanut stands of Florida. I have lived in Florida my entire life and have found many Northerners fall in love with these peanuts the very first time they taste them. If you have never had peanuts from a roadside stand in Florida, then try these and you will taste what us Floridians love!” - by Jason Walters

- Place peanuts, salt, pickles with brine, jalapenos, and crab boil in a large pot. Pour in water to cover the peanuts; stir to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook until soft, at least 4 hours, adding water as needed to keep peanuts covered. Scoop peanuts out of the pot with a slotted spoon and serve hot.

"I authored this recipe and just wanted to clarify a few things. This recipe is meant to be cooked on the stove so peanuts should be done in 4 hours or more. If you do decide to cook them in a crockpot..." See more then they will take typically 7 hours or more on high. If the peanuts are taking a very long time on the stove like one reviewer stated you possibly purchased peanuts not meant for boiling. Make sure you have not purchased roasted peanuts. Typically the correct peanuts at places like Walmart will have indications of boiling on the package."
"When I've traveled in the south; I've often seen roadside stands with "Hot Boiled Peanuts" for sale. Sometimes whimsical signs of giant peanuts would advertise them. Every now and then, I like to make..." See more a batch of them to enjoy with an icy soft drink. This recipe has some good flavor ideas within. However, I felt quite a bit more salt was needed for the brine. And for our preferences; I will double the rest of the other ingredients next time because we like it spicy. The cook time was spot-on for raw peanuts. I will definitely make again with these changes. A very good base to start."
