You can just use raw peanuts from the grocery store. I use 1/2 cup of salt per gal of water (I think), and make sure you have plenty of water. Cook them until they are done at least 2 hours. You'll know when they are done cause when you taste one it won't be bitter. It's been a while since I made any. I have thought about vending them. One more thing make sure you wash them off real well, they have a tendency to hold dirt and that can ruin a batch of peanuts. I think I'll make some this weekend.

rooster is right, just plain raw or green pnuts. i think the 2 hours is a little short, ive always done'em about 4 hours. they still have a little texture, not 100% mushy. as an added flavor, add a couple smoked hamhocks. not traditional, but ive not had any complaints. tim

In Charlotte, NC you should be able to go into any grocery store and find raw or green peanuts. North and South Carolina, and Georgia is where they are the most popular. I can't imagine you will have any difficulty finding the nuts. and like I said 2 hours would be a minimum. I kinda like takin them on to around 5 - 6 hours.

Charlotte may be a little too urban to find green peanuts, but
if you do a little research and askin' around, you should be able
to get some. Add some cajun seasoning to em while they boil..
I can eat my weight in cajun peanuts....nobody can have just one.

Man, that is one of the things I miss! Living up here in NE Indiana, all I ever see are the dried ones and they just don't make good boiled peanuts.
