Spicy Boiled Peanuts

Some girls and I went to Tampa FL to see an old friend and her truck, Big Reba.

After a must-do sunset dinner on the St. Pete beach at Crabby Bill's, we were ready for Charann's the next evening.  Well, I was ready; they had never been there.

I went for the spicy boiled peanuts and the philly cheese steak.  These things are to die for. My friends agreed.

Eventually, I came home, settled back into my routine and found myself staring a Saturday night college football game in the face.  What to serve for our football party?  Think... think... You know it -- spicy boiled peanuts.

And here, my friend, in the spirit of generosity I am known for, is my recipe:
  • Toss 2 20 oz. bags of raw peanuts (in the shell) in a large crock pot.
  • Cover with water.
  • Mix in 1/2 c salt.
  • Mix in one whole entire container (2 oz) of red pepper flakes. I know.... but do it.
  • Turn crockpot on high.
  • Cook/simmer/stir occasionally and add water as needed for at least 10 hours. 

Have your iced sweet tea handy,
you're gonna need it.
