Southern Slow Cooked Hot Boiled Peanuts

Makes 10-12 servings


  • 2-3 lbs raw peanuts in shell
  • 1/4-1/2 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup Creole seasoning {I like Tony Chachere's}
  • 8 cups of water {to start}


  • Rinse peanuts well to remove any dirt and debris.
  • Pour into slow cooker.
  • Cover with water {about 6-8 cups}.
  • Add salt and seasoning. Stir.
  • Cook on low for 12hrs {minimum} to 24hrs. Or you can let soak in the warm brine for an additional 12 hrs.
  • Be sure to check and add more water to cover the peanuts as they cook.
  • To serve: using a slotted spoon, scoop peanuts into bowls and serve warm.
