A boiled peanut is a southern thing, what do you know about that? My grandmother would never say she make making boiled peanuts she would say, do you want some “bold peanuts”. A serving size is 1/2 cup that is unless you are a true southerner than you eat, eat and eat til you have enough. Jules this recipe is dedicated to you, please let me know when you make them.
SPICY BOILED PEANUTS
Wash 5 pounds of in-shell raw peanuts. Dump the washed peanuts into a large heavy pot. Add 5 (12 oz.) bottles of beer and enough water to cover the peanuts. Add a handful of garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes, 4 tablespoons granulated onions, 1/4 cup Cajun seasoning. Bring the water to a rapid boil for about 10-minutes. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook with a lid on the pot for 1 hour. Check the seasoning by tasting the water. Remove the lid, add 1/4 cup liquid shrimp and crab boil, put the lid back on and simmer for another 45 minutes.
