Wanting to cajun boil a sack of green peanuts
Never boiled these before. I bought a 32lb sack of big green peanuts.
I have a 110qt crawfish pot and burner.
Any tips?

You’ll need a metric shite ton of salt.

When I boil a few pounds I boil for 1:15 or so then let them soak 30 minutes

As for seasoning of course lots of salt. Lots of people just like to use liquid crab boil. I’m ok with maybe just a little of that, but if I’m going for the spicy flavors I like to add some ceyenne, red pepper flakes and stuff like that.

I wonder if peeling a few cloves of garlic would make a difference?

Every time I try to make Cajun peanuts they just come out extremely salty and not hot at all

I like the ones you can buy in the gas station already cooked.

Cover peanuts with water and bring to boil. Add 2lbs. of salt and 2lbs boiled crawfish seasoning. Simmer for 4 to 5 hrs. or until the nut is soft. Soak as long as you can....this where they will pick up the flavor. I soak mine over night and then bring water to a boil then drain into an ice chest. Freeze leftovers in zip lock bags for up to a year.

1 big bag of crawfish seasoning at a minimum. Add salt, I usually only add 1 container since the crawfish season also has salt, but I like mine more spicy than salty.

Low boil for 4 hours, add water as needed. I usually add a little at about the 90 minute point, and then check again at 3 hour point.

Let soak to taste. Eat till sick

Store the remainder in gallon ziplock bags and freeze, they thaw out easily in the microwave, you’ll have them all year.

Good luck

I usually boil late afternoon/evening until desired doneness of nut = taste a few along. Turn them off and let sit overnight....inside. Next day they are ready. Make sure to wear a bib....they shells will be full of cooking liquid

re: Wanting to cajun boil a sack of green peanuts
Went to get some from the produce stand this morning and there was a guy picking out all the big ones, one by one, WTF, so I ended up buying a whole bag.

Last weekend when I cooked them it took me seven hours, and this week was done in 3. Different stoves, but not sure, must of been the difference between a simmer, and a rolling boil.

How do you store any uncooked and left over? I put some in my pantry and They started to mold, now I’ll try in the refrigerator.

Put them in ziplocks and in the freezer unless you are going to eat/cook within a few days
