Simmer Down & Get Crackin’

Boiled peanuts hail as one of a southerners most coveted tidbits & the love runs deep. They have developed quite the loyal following for something that was once only found along rural roadsides. A ripped cardboard appliance box sporting the menu item & price in drippy black spray paint was your cue to slow down & stop for a small bag. It’s no secret a helping of these delectables are a welcome addition to any casual gathering, particularly under the tailgating tent & to prepare them, all you have to do is plug in your slow cooker. Inspired by the mopping sauces that add flavor, moisture & tenderize an array of smoky nibbles, Hog Wash Boiled Peanuts start with an iconic soft drink, Co-Cola. Coupled with salt & spices, these peanuts would make any connoisseur proud. Make a batch well in advance so they can be devoured right away. If you like them warm, simply hold the boiled peanuts in the slow cooker & let guests help themselves to these glorious refreshments.

makes 8 servings

The Basic Fundamentals

Raw peanuts are generally packaged in 2-pound bags however in order to cook them effortlessly in a 6-quart slow cooker, the entire portion will not be used. You can roast the remaining 8-ounces of peanuts in the oven according to package instructions, if desired.

1 1/2 lbs raw peanuts in the shell
1 liter co-cola
5 cups water, divided
1/3 cup kosher salt
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
4 garlic cloves, smashed

Rinse the peanuts under cool water to remove any dirt or debris & place them in the crock of a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the co-cola, 3 cups of water, the salt, the Worcestershire sauce, the red pepper flakes & the garlic. Place the lid on the slow cooker following manufacturers instructions. Cook on High 8 to 9 hours. Stir the peanuts halfway through the cooking time & add the remaining 2 cups of water, if necessary. The peanuts will be ready when tender & the bite should have a similar consistency to a cooked kidney bean in a pot of homemade chili.

The Extra Point

The shelled peanuts are delicious over a salad or tucked into a veggie wrap & provide a quality source of protein.
