One of the most satisfying snacks for some people are boiled peanuts. They are quick to prepare and very easy to make. Even if you don’t know how to cook, it’s almost impossible to mess up this recipe. They are a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Even though they have a high caloric and fat content, they are a great energy booster. Most people eat them for their snack value, not realizing how healthy they can be.
In order to make them good and simply, you will need the following:
Raw peanuts in the shell (do not use the dried peanuts, they must be moist or wet)
Water (tap water)
Salt to taste (optional) (if you have a high blood pressure issue, just eliminate the salt)
Cajun seasoning for spicy or hot red peppers for heat (optional)
Equipment needed:
Deep pot with lid
Long handle ladle or spoon
Cooking mitt
1. Wash the peanuts in water and let them drain in a strainer. Some peanuts have a residual of dirt or soil on them. Wash them very well to remove the dirt. (If you didn’t know, peanuts grow in the ground.)
2. Fill the pot with water – one half full and place on stove with the burner on high
3. Add salt to the water ( to your taste) this is optional
4. When the water begins to boil, add peanuts with the ladle
5. Always make sure at least one inch of water is covering the peanuts
6. Add seasoning or extra spices at this time to your taste
7. After 30 minutes of boiling, turn the stove burner down to simmer
8. Allow the peanuts to simmer until peanut shell is semi-hard. Do a taste test after two to three (2-3) hours. If they are not ready for your consistency, allow them to simmer longer.
After peanuts are finished pour off most of the water and begin to eat and enjoy. They can be eaten hot or cool. Once you start eating, it is hard to stop especially if you prepared them properly. Do not leave them in standing water if you do not eat them right away or the same day. They have a tendency to spoil or start fermenting. You will automatically know if they have spoiled because they will smell and taste sour and have a frothy look to them. Refrigerate and store the remaining portion without water to keep them fresh in a storage bag or container. They will still taste good.
