"I like mine salty: the trick (to get the right flavor), is to boil them to the right consistancy, usually about 2 hours. Then, if you want them saltier, DO NOT add more salt and boil some more. Rather..." See more, let them sit in their brine as it cools. Every 20 minutes or so, taste one. When they are salty enough for you, drain them. (This means you don't have to taste hot peanuts, and they don't get too soggy. It also gets them saltier quicker.)"
"The only thing this recipe lacks is a reminder to let the peanuts sink. You really must let them sit in the water until they sink for them to be really excellent. Also don't be afraid to put in some d..." See moreifferent spices. Bay leaf is very good in this recipe."
"Boiled peanuts are the best. My dad has been making them for years. When we moved away from the south we had to learn how as they are not readily available everywhere. I was surprised how easy they..." See more are to make and you can put them in the crock pot as well, they take about 12 hours that way when cooked on high. I was excited to learn my dad recently introduced my daughter to them and she loves them. Make sure you use raw peanuts. We have tried with roasted and they do not work well."
