I love boiled peanuts!! I only have used the fresh raw ones boiled in salt. When you use pickles are the pickles just a seasoning or do you eat those too?

So what do you do with the shell?

You can eat them whole if they are cooked long enough to be soft and the peanut was small (3 hrs. is usual). But some are not soft enough and you open and eat. So depends.

You throw the shell on the ground. Never heard or seen anyone eating the shell.

All my life, I've known these small ones you can eat shell and all as "poppers"  Just assumed everyone who ate boiled peanuts knew this. Guess it may be a regional thing.

"Poppers" in San Francisco meant something else in the 80's  :shocked:

Gonna give it a whirl in the Instant Pot.. usually I boil green peanuts on the stove but I'm curious how raw peanuts will cook in the Instant Pot. Dumped in some Frank's Hot Sauce and salt and hit go!
....

2 cycles in the instant pot and they are ready. Came out really good. Don't let their plain appearance fool you... Every Southerner knows these things are addictively delicious!

Good call on the hot sauce, I will get Frank's or sometimes Texas Pete from Sam's by the gallon. Makes for some damn good peanuts!

 

off topic side note: it also works well mixed in brining solution for smoked chicken...

love the ones you get at Crawdaddy's in Jensen Beach, FL.  They use tomatoes in there too and the heat level is great.  They WILL NOT give up their recipe though :(

There's a local Ace Hardware here that is selling a deep fried peanut product, various flavors, eat they shell and all.  They get all kinds of weird local p[products in there.

Boiled peanuts are great! I too eat the really soft ones with the shell and open the others. I'd never heard of anyone else doing that really. I've also tried the deep fried peanuts. They were a little weird but I didn't dislike them.

I used to do the big city trade show thing for the C-store business.  They have plenty of vendors that would bring cans and cans of boiled peanuts, to sell to the store owners.  Good peanuts, but what you see on the rural drive home in Florida is much better.  Inclined to cook up a batch, as I have ripened Scotch Bonnets and Habaneros, and I am HUNGRY!
