Directions

  1. In a crockpot, put about 2 quarts of water and add the peanuts (in their shells) such that the water just barely covers the peanuts.
  2. Add 2-3 tbs salt and 10 dashes of red pepper (more if you like spice) and a dash each (optional) of garlic and soy sauce.
  3. Let it all simmer for 24 hours, adding more water when the level gets lower, every so often.
  4. The idea is to get the peanuts really soft inside the shells.
  5. When ready, serve hot, with an empty bowl nearby for the empty shells.
