A boiled peanut is a southern thing, what do you know about that? My grandmother would never say she was 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 they are all gone.
Wash 5 lbs. of shell on raw/green 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, 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 45-60-minutes. Check the seasoning by tasting the water. Remove the lid, add 3 T. liquid crab boil, put the lid back on simmer for another 20-25 minutes.
