Growing up in the south, particularly in Charleston, South Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida, boiled peanuts were a staple snack for our family.

Boiled peanut stands were a common sight, and we could easily buy a paper bag or Styrofoam cup full of the salty, tender peanuts-usually hot out of the kettle.

We would sit on the front porch and eat them as the brine dripped down our arms.

What Kind of Peanuts to Use

You need to use raw peanuts in the shell, NOT roasted peanuts, when making boiled peanuts.

When it comes to raw peanuts, there are two types: green peanuts and regular raw peanuts.

Green peanuts are fresh, raw peanuts that haven’t been dried. So they have more moisture and therefore have a shorter shelf life.

From my research, it seems it is easier to find green peanuts if you live in an area where peanuts are grown and harvested. If you have access to green peanuts in your area, feel free to use those!

In my area, I haven’t been able to find green peanuts. Instead, I use regular raw peanuts. These have been dried to make them more shelf-stable, but they haven’t been roasted. So they are raw, but not green.

I’ve been able to find these at Walmart in the nuts section. I’ve also found them at some grocery stores, such as Publix, in the fresh produce section.

If you can’t find them locally, you can order them from Amazon.

Should You Eat Boiled Peanuts Hot or Cold?

This boils down (haha!) to personal preference. Most roadside stands serve them hot, but I eat them both ways.

After they initially cool, I store them in their brine in the refrigerator, and I don’t reheat them. I just eat them cold. I think both ways are delicious!

How to Make Boiled Peanuts in the Crock Pot

To start, you’ll rinse and sort through some raw peanuts. Remove any debris or pieces of shells that need to be discarded.

Add the peanuts to the slow cooker and top with some coarse sea salt.

Next, you’ll cover the peanuts with water and cook on high for about 5-7 hours, or until the peanuts are as tender as you’d like.

I recommend stirring them every so often to ensure they all get exposed to the salty brine. You may also need to add some water along the way, depending on how much evaporates.
