BOILED PEANUTS IN THE CROCK POT This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the Shelton Estate in Arlington, Texas in 1992. 1-1/2 quarts green uncooked peanuts 1/2 cup salt 2-1/2 quarts water Wash peanuts until water runs clear. Put clean peanuts in crock pot then add salt and water and stir well. Cook covered on high for 7 hours. Add additional water during cooking if necessary to keep peanuts covered.
