Cajun Boiled Peanuts Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
Since I don't know how boiled peanuts are supposed to taste, I have no idea if I did this wrong, or if I just didn't like them. I added salt like suggested and they cooked for about 10 hours overnight. It wasn't something I would eat a ton of, but I am very glad I tried it. Thanks for the inspiration.

I rated the recipe a 4 but w/ modifications it was a 5 star success. Like the others...no way will my crockpot hold 5 lbs & it is a lg. crockpot. I used 1 1/2 lbs (although I probably could have doubled it...just wanted to give the recipe a try first), decreased the spices according & I, too, added at least a cup of kosher salt. Can't imagine the peanuts w/out it. I ahve been munching on them all day!!

My family and I thought these were fantastic! I have a "normal" sized crock pot, and found a 1.5 oz bag of peanuts worked perfectly. I used HALF of an Old Bay seafood one-step shrimp & crab boil 3 oz package, and instead of the jalapenos, some (about half cup?) tabasco sauce. I also added some kosher salt (1-2 cups?) since I like em salty. Cooked them in the crock pot on high stirring occasionally for 10-12 hours. Had no problems with maintaining water level. The taste was fantastic, and due to popular demand had to make a second batch the next day.

I'm not sure how this recipe can call for 5 pounds of peanuts?? Even using an extra large crock pot, I could not put that many in. I filled it with as much as I could, probably too much, for I could not get enough water in it. I ended up cooking them over night, then adding more water in the morning, and continued to cook on low the rest of the day and early evening. I also added salt. After all that said....they are very tasty, and I will try again with less peanuts next time.
