Spicy Cajun Boiled Peanuts


Meal Types: Appetizer

Ingredients:

  1. 1 lb Raw Peanuts (rinsed)
  2. 10 Cups Water
  3. 1/2 Cup Sea Salt
  4. 2 Tb Salt Free Cajun Spice Blend
  5. 1 (2oz) Bottle of Tabasco Sauce

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, bring ingredients to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium/low. Cover partially with a lid and simmer for 1½ hours.
  3. Check the consistency of one peanut. It probably will not be soft yet.
  4. Cover and continue simmering and stirring every so often. Check every hour to see if the peanuts are soft and chewy. Add additional water if needed. (I added and additional 3 cups towards the end)
  5. Once the peanuts are done cooking, remove from heat and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. (I cooked my peanuts for 4 hours, cooking times vary)
  6. Serve hot or cold. Refrigerate peanuts in an airtight container with some of the cooking liquid.
