Boiled peanuts are manna from heaven. To get the best boiled peanuts you need to use green peanuts not dried. Do not confuse green peanuts with raw peanuts. Raw peanuts can be green or mature and dried. Green one are perishable so it is difficult to get them by mail but I have done so. It makes them expensive. They are seasonal and not easily found outside of certain areas of the south, I can't usually find them here in Charlotte. However, when I go down to the SC coast I buy them in the produce section of Piggly Wiggly. You can make boiled peanuts from dried ones but it takes forever and they are never as juicy and delicious. If you order a bunch though they freeze well. After cooking a pot full, fill a bunch of zip lock bags with them and thaw out later. To me watching college football goes much better with boiled peanuts.

As another boilded peanut lover The below information is quite accurate. The one thing I would add is if you do use raw dried (which you will have to some of the time) soak the dried peanuts in water for about 12-16 hours before boiling and the boil does not take nearly as long. One other thing I would add; after having lived in NC, SC and VA I can say that VA peanuts make the best boiled peanuts. They are bigger and tastier. This is where I get mine most of the time http://www.aboutpeanuts.com/index.ph...=489&Itemid=39

When they are in seaon Walmart carries them around here too. You have to jump on them quickly though because they go fast there. And then once it gets late in the season they aren't very high quality. They're great when they first show up though.

I buy from a local grower and he has them up until a few weeks after our first frost. He grows down toward Palatka Fl. so he can harvest in as late as December. I'm not sure when he gets his first crop but he continues to plant all summer into the fall.
I'm thinking about growing some myself BUT between the peanuts and salt I gain too much weight!!!
I make them in my pressure cooker!! There is a trick to it. Once up to pressure I cook for 30 minutes then remove from heat and let cool in the salted water. If drained before cool they are cooked but dry with no salt taste. I can sample them after the pressure subsides but are better after cool.
Cooking in the open pot takes tooo long!

Don't know any reason the crock pot wouldn't work. I am on blood pressure meds but I won't give up my boiled peanuts. I don't make them as salty as most road side suppliers but they still taste good to me.

I have done them in a crock pot and it works fine on high.

I have not used a pressure cooker but I think that would work even better.
