Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 lbs raw peanuts, in the shell
3/4 cup salt
12 cups water
1 pkg (3-oz) boil-in-bag shrimp and crab boil
1/3 cup hot sauce

Combine all the ingredients in a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker or crockpot.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high for 18 hours or until the peanuts are soft.

Drain peanuts before serving or storing.

To store, place in ziptop plastic freezer bags and keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

You can also freeze these peanuts in resealable freezer bags up to 2 months. May be reheated in microwave before serving.

Yield: 18 cups of peanuts

This is a recipe from Mr. Food.
