Afternoon fellas and non fellas. Wanted to share a true southern snack with yall. Down here and all across the south you can get hot boiled peanuts at just about any gas station and even at roadside stands. It's a real treat. Heres my take.....

Start out with 2lbs of raw peanuts. Place in large crock pot and add 4qts of water.

Add......
1/3c kosher salt
1/4c diced jalapeno
3 fat tbls cajun seasoning
1tsp garlic powder
3tbls crushed red pepper
3oz bag of cajun crab boil

Pausch the crab boil bag under the peanuts. They will float for the first several hours. Stir in all other seasonings. Cover with lid and set crock pot on low

Stir occasionally. Cook on low for 24hrs and add water as needed.

When finished pour some into a cup with some of the juice and enjoy this southern classic. I'll be back tomorrow to show them finished
 
Boy, I sure miss boiled peanuts! Congestive heart failure keeps me watching the sodium real close. Boiled peanuts might be the thing I miss most. Those look like a great take on a southern treat!
