I recently moved to Charlotte, North Carolina from Minneapolis, MN. About a year ago I found one of the most addictive foods I have ever come across: boiled peanuts.
They take raw peanuts, brine them and them simmer them for about 8-10 hours and voila, heaven.
I'm wondering if anyone has ever cooked them before. I found some "green peanuts" at the farmers market a few days ago, bought a pound and now have to cook them. I've only had regular and cajun flavors.
Anyone have a good recipe? I have some blackening spice that I make and keep on hand. I figure i'll just brine them, drain them, put them in the crock pot(which seems to be the prefered method) with fresh water and the seasoning.
They seem strait forward, but any advice will be appeciated.
