  • 2 lbs. green peanuts
  • 1/8-1/4 cup Himalayan pink salt depends on how salty you like your boiled peanuts
  • water
  • 6 Qt. Slowcooker
  1. Place peanuts into your slow cooker.
  2. Sprinkle pink salt over top.
  3. Fill the Slowcooker with water until the peanuts are covered.
  4. Put on the lid to your slowcooker and set it to cook on Low for 10 hours.
  5. After 10 hours, check your peanuts, they will be done but still have a slight bite to them. We prefer ours soft and salty so I like to cook them for an additional 10 hours, so set the slow cooker on Low for another 10 hours and wait just a little bit longer.
  6. After the second cooking round the peanuts should be done. Shell as you eat. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

While we prefer to use himalayan pink salt in this recipe, regular table salt can be used as a substitute.
