Crock Pot Cajun Hot Boiled Peanuts

Cook time: 14 Hr  Prep time: 5 Min  Serves: hard to say, approx. 4-5, depends on how many you put in a bowl. For me, that would be a lot.


1 lb raw or green peanuts
2 Tbsp cajun seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 c salt (start with 1/4 c. and add more to your taste)



1. Put the peanuts in the crock pot and cover with water, enough water so that when you push them down about 2″ of water is still above them. Add in the Cajun seasoning, garlic powder and salt. Stir, cover and cook on high for 3 hours, reduce to low and cook for an additional 9-10 hours or until the texture you like them. If you want to freeze them, let them cool then put in a freezer bag. To reheat, place the amount you want to eat, cover with water and boil for 5 minutes.
