cajun boiled peanuts

these boiled peanuts are the perfect march madness snack, we noshed on them while watching the elite eight this weekend and will probably make them again for the final four games next weekend. before I met stephen, I had never had a boiled peanut. in fact, I said that I would never eat one. they seemed complicated to eat and honestly, kind of gross. boy was I wrong.


fast forward... stephen now makes these for us every other week. if he were to do a guest blog post, this would be it! of course, he doesn't use exact measurements so you'll have to play around with your seasoning and salt quantities. let these babies cook for 24-36 hours then grab a beer, some piping hot boiled peanuts, and cheer on your team!





ingredients:
jumbo raw peanuts
cajun seasoning
salt
water

instructions:
1. pour half of a bag of jumbo raw peanuts into a crock pot. fill the crock pot with enough water to cover the peanuts.
2. thoroughly coat the peanuts with cajun seasoning and then salt.
3. cook on high for 24-36 hours. be sure to cook outside to avoid a smelly house!
