  • pounds raw peanuts in the shell
  • 4 tablespoons kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable canola, or other cooking oil, optional


  • Use a 6-quart or larger slow cooker.
  • Place the raw peanuts in the shell into your slow cooker and add the salt.
  • If desired, add cooking oil. (This helps with peeling but is not absolutely necessary.)
  • Add enough fresh water to the slow cooker that if you push the peanuts down, they will be covered by at least 1 inch of water.
  • Cover and cook on high for 18-24 hours.
  • Halfway through cooking time, add a few cups of water to replace the water that has evaporated.
  • After 18 hours, scoop a peanut out with a slotted spoon and let it cool so you can handle it. Peel and taste. It should be melty and creamy and not have any sort of "bite" or al dente feel to it.
  • Spread several paper towels onto a baking sheet and spoon the nuts onto the paper towels to let dry a bit and cool.
  • Store peanuts in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 7 days or freeze them for up to 6 months. Heat lightly in the microwave or eat at room temperature.
