INGREDIENTS
4 cups green peanuts in the shell
2 gallons hot water
1 cup salt

DIRECTIONS
Thoroughly wash peanuts, using several changes of water. Place in a 3-4 quart pot.
Stir salt into hot water until dissolved. Pour salt water into the pot to cover peanuts by an inch.
Set remaining salt water aside.
Bring salt water and peanuts to a boil, cover, reduce heat and cook one hour.
Test doneness by breaking open and tasting a slightlycooled nut.
Cook to desired firmness - 1-3 hours for freshly-picked peanuts and 8-12 hours for dried nuts.
Add salt water as needed to cover. Serve hot.
Cover and refrigerate.
