Looking good JB. I made some last week myself. I do about 10 to 20 lbs a cook and what I don't eat, I freeze in the pots juices in quart or gallon bags. I just thaw em out and start eating. They freeze well.

The few times I've tried boiled peanuts I haven't been that excited about them. But JB, your recipe sounds like it would add excitement!

JB I don't care much for boiled peanuts but I'm gonna have to give that a try. Anything with crab boil sounds good to me.

Hey JB, how soft are the peanuts? Per my Docs orders no more nuts thanks to my diverticulitis but if there soft then screw it, they look too damn good. Give a bowl and an ice cold beer and I would be in heaven.

The longer you boil em the softer they get. Also the ones that the shell is cracked or have a hole in are soft as olives & have more flavor.
You could crack em all before boiling or just simmer em for 24 to 36 hours

I did about 5 pounds of dried peanuts per JB's recipe. It is getting mixed reviews here. I love em. It is like preparing a pot for boiling seafood, but the peanuts are the seafood. I will do it again and thanks for the recipe JB. Seriously, I think they are awesome, peanut shell sucking good.

I never realy measure ingediants, I kinda eyeball em so ajust to suit your taste. They should be a bit salty with a good garlic & boil seasoning taste.
I don't like mine too hot but just enough to remind you to keep a beer ready & cold.
