My DH wants something a little different then the usual salted boiled peanuts. Maybe something with a little more flavor.

Garlic Boiled Peanuts



  • Ingredients

  • 1-2 lb peanuts (in their shells)
    water
    2-3 tablespoons salt
    10 dashes red peppers
    1 dash garlic
    1 dash soy sauce

  • Directions
    In a crockpot, put about 2 quarts of water and add the peanuts (in their shells) such that the water just barely covers the peanuts.

  • Add 2-3 tbs salt and 10 dashes of red pepper (more if you like spice) and a dash each (optional) of garlic and soy sauce.

  • Let it all simmer for 24 hours, adding more water when the level gets lower, every so often.

Spicy Smokey Peanuts


2 cups husked shelled raw Spanish peanuts (about 10 ounces)
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring


2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper



preparation


Line jelly roll pan with foil. Toss peanuts, Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke in pan. Let marinate at room temperature, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.


Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325°F. Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium-low heat. Cool slightly. Stir in vinegar, hot pepper sauce, salt and cayenne. Return skillet to heat. Scrape in nuts and marinade. Stir to coat nuts about 30 seconds. Return nut mixture to jelly roll pan. Bake until deep golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Transfer pan to rack and cool. Let stand uncovered 6 hours to dry. (Can be made 1 week ahead. Store nuts in airtight container at room temperature.)
