  • 2 to 3 lbs fresh green peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups salt, (regular table salt)


Put the fresh green peanuts with their shells on and cover them good with water. Add salt and bring it to a boil for about an hour. To check whether they are done, pull one or two peanuts out of the pot and crack them open. When they are soft, they are done. If they are still slightly crunchy, they are not done yet. If they are not salty enough, leave them in salted water and turn off the heat.
