Who doesn’t love boiled peanuts? Yes, I know there are some people who can’t stomach them but being from the South, I absolutely adore them!

Of course picking up a bag from a roadside stand is the ideal way to savor this Southern delicacy and is how I was introduced to boiled peanuts when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve learned to always have a roll of paper towels in the vehicle in case you come across one of those roadside stands. You just never know!

But if you aren’t in an area where that is possible, this recipe is the next best thing and it is so very easy. You just dump the washed green peanuts into the crock pot, add the water, and then the Kosher salt. Cover and then forget about them until 18 hours have passed! It couldn’t be any easier.

See the notes below if you prefer a spicier boiled peanut. You just can’t go wrong with this recipe. Perfect for afternoon TV binge watching or a baseball or football game!

Bon appétit!
