A slow cooker makes boiled peanuts super easy to make! A warm, salty, tender boiled peanut is the perfect snack for any occasion! Hot boiled peanuts are a traditional southern snack. Now, they aren’t for everyone. You either like them or you don’t. My daughter and I love them but my husband won’t even think about eating one. To each their own, right?
Slow Cooker Boiled Peanuts
Use raw green peanuts for this recipe. If you can only find raw dried peanuts soak them overnight in cool water before placing them in the slow cooker. Dried peanuts will take much longer to cook if not soaked first.
Rinse the peanuts in cold water, drain and place them in the slow cooker. Add the kosher salt, creole seasoning, and water.
Stir to combine, place the lid on a cook on low for 20-24 hours.
Periodically check the water level to make sure they are covered.
After 20 hours check for desired tenderness. They may need to cook up to 24 hours.
Drain the liquid from the peanuts and discard. Store the peanuts in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
