One must taste test the saltiness several many times during the boiling process :).

Would it be too much to ask for a recipe or directions for boiling peanuts?  

I'm asking for a friend.  :) ;)

   One recipe I saw on line said add 1/2 cup of salt to a gallon of water and use water solution adequate to cover the peanuts. We have used ice cream salt too. 

    At old time southern peanut boilings they were cooked in a big old cast iron washpot. I see them being boiled in 55 gallon drums by the roadsides all over the South. I never bothered to check to see what had been in the barrels. That might have been a taste additive.

Thanks!  How long do they boil?  

I've got the wash pot I cook chicken stew in.  I've always wanted to try boiled peanuts but never have found a roadside stand I felt good about their peanuts.

   Boil to taste. You can't overcook them. I figure about an hour at a good rolling boil is generally adequate.

I like to boil um until they are soft.  Even slightly crunchy needs more time.

You don't let 'em dry out after they're boiled, right?  I've seen people carrying them around in a zip lock bag.  How long do they keep?

When we cook them they keep about an hour or so, then they're all gone...

They freeze well.  I boil a big pot and put what I don't immediately need in freezer bags and put them in the freezer.  You can re-heat them in a little water later in the microwave or put them in some water in a pot on the stove and bring them to a boil again to heat them up.

   I should have stared this thread under the Food category I see.

   Yes keep the cooked peanuts in a zip log bag (they are very moist) or bowl once cooked if not eaten immediately. They are very addictive once you start eating them. They probably are safe to eat exposed with no refrigeration for a day or two. They will keep a week or so in a refrigerator and near indefinitely when frozen. We froze all but one bag and it is near empty now. 

   My SIL said one of her other BILs ran a country store near her in Escambia County Fla. He sold the canned boiled Peanuts (Peanut Patch brand a I remember - they are a fair substitute if all you can get) then some vendor came along offering frozen boiled peanuts. He said people loved the frozen ones and said they were much better than canned ones. He ran out of frozen peanuts so he opened the cans and froze them till gone. People still swore how much better those frozen peanuts were.

So if bagged or placed in bowl and refrigerated are these left open or sealed?  
Is there an issue if they dry out?

Yep another topic gone foody!

   I don't think they would ever dry out in the refrigerator and I can't imagine them lasting long enough to ever dry out once you taste them.

   MM said he liked his soft, I like mine with a little crunch so just cook them to taste. I see people selling them as Cajun flavored and I think they just add some Cajun spices to the mix. You probably get enough off the hulls when you open them to get that taste. I prefer mine just salted and not overly salty at that.

I'm feeling a Saturday peanut boil coming on and I'm thinking Old Bay flavored might be interesting.  

Sorry for derailing this one!  Not really 8)

   Better not let them try them or there won't be enough for the rest of us.

   I am not suggesting they are addictive but I understand there are on-going studies indicating boiled peanuts may be used to help get drug addicts off Heroin and Crack Cocaine by keeping them distracted munching on peanuts instead of doing hard drugs. :D
