Boiled Peanuts

  • 2 lbs. of fresh and raw peanuts that are still in their shells
  • 2 tablespoons of salt
  • 1 bag of Zatarain's Crab and Shrimp Boil
  • 1 tablespoon of red pepper (or more, if you are feeling lucky)
  • Place the peanuts in a large pot and add enough water to cover them and almost fill the pot.
  • Add the salt and stir it real well.
  • Turn the stove to the high heat setting and cover until it boils.
  • Add the Zatarain's and the red pepper.
  • Reduce the heat just enough to keep it from boiling over.
  • Boil the peanuts for 4 hours. Add water as needed to keep the peanuts covered.
  • Drain the peanuts and serve.
  • Enjoy the Cajun boiled peanuts!
