SPICY BOILED PEANUTS

SPICY BOILED PEANUTS

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 unless you are a true southerner, then you eat, eat, and eat until you have enough. Jules, this recipe is dedicated to you. Please let me know when you make them.

Wash 5 pounds of the peanuts in salt water. 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 T. of red pepper flakes, 4 T. 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 simmer for another 20-25 minutes.
