Default Boiled Green Peanuts in Pressure Cooker

I can make boiled peanuts in 30 minutes in my pressure cooker!
The trick is after perking for 30 minutes you turn off the heat and let it sit to cool off. That lets the water and salt soak in.
If you open the cooker without letting it sit and cool the peanuts will be cooked but dry with no salt taste.
I have also frozen boiled peanuts. They are almost as good as when fresh.

Frozen peanuts are great on the boat. Just toss them in the cooler frozen, and get out 30 min or so before time to eat them. Love them when they are still barely frozen in the middle on a hot day.

Yea, I would like this recipe also. Not exactly sure what "perking,' means with a pressure cooker. Also, it seems mighty early for green peanuts to be showing up.

I lived in Milton Florida for a little over a year 1988-89 while attending flight school. As one of those Yankee, ya’ll love to hate, I had never heard of a “boiled peanut” till I saw someone selling them on the side of the road in Navarre Florida. After trying “boiled peanuts” , I had a hard time NOT stopping to buy boiled peanuts every time I came across someone selling them.

I haven’t had a boiled peanut in 30+ years but if my memory serves me correctly, there was almost no better pairing then boiled peanuts and ice cold beer........

This is still true. If you can't find them locally, and there are no green peanuts available to DIY, "Peanut Patch" brand in a can are pretty good, and available on amazon.

Simple recipe- Add green peanuts to pressure cooker (I use a 6 qt) leaving about 2" from top and add salt, ( DON'T FORGET THE SALT!! I DID ONCE AND THEY SUCKED!)
I add about 1/4 box or 1 cup and fill with water to top of peanuts.
Perking for lack of a better word is when the pressure is up and escaping, time 30 minutes from there.
It's important to leave them in the salt water until fairly cool. That lets the peanuts uptake the salt.
When the pressure is off you can open the cooker but let them in the hot water. You can sample them as they cool.
I think I tried using dried peanuts but don't remember how it worked or time. You could try a small batch if that's all you can get.
This will stink up the house and add to your waistline!!

I bought a small two pound bag of raw Valencia nuts yesterday to try. They were dated march 2019 but assume they'll be ok. I soaked them overnight and plan to cook them this evening.

I sent my Nephew in Kentucky about 3 lbs of green peanuts and he said he is going to try boiling them in a Slow Cooker.
I have never used a slow cooker, any guesses how it will work?

Works great. Run it on high. Not really any difference than on the stove. 1/3 cup of salt (a bit more if using kosher) per half gallon of water. I prefer them to have a bit of crunch left. For that cook 4-5 hours. If you like them softer go as long as 12.

I haven't seen any green peanuts yet, but I usually cook a bushel at a time. So a pressure cooker isn't a good option for me. Package in gallon bags and freeze........

Yes, Zatarain's. Also boiled peanuts with Old Bay, Texas Pete, white vinegar, or ham hocks. Plain ham hocks with salt to taste is probably my favorite.....

I finally found some raw peanuts and gave em a try in the IP. It took longer than expected, about 1.5 hours, then let them sit in the juice overnight. They turned out great!

If you don't have fresh to boil yourself, by far the best I've ever had, heads above all the rest are from this company:

https://heritagepeanuts.com

They will ship them to you wherever. Thaw them out, eat them cold or heat them up they are fantastic.
