Place the water and peanuts in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cover the pan with a heavy lid and heat over high heat until the water boils.

Then reduce the heat to medium so that the peanuts simmer gently. After 30 minutes you can add the sea salt and Cajun seasoning powder. Cover the pot again and let the peanuts continue to simmer. During the cooking process it is important to stir the peanuts regularly so that they cook evenly. If necessary you have to add a little water during the cooking process so that the cooking process is not interrupted.

The peanuts will take about 3 hours to soften. Check the consistency of your peanuts during cooking to make sure they are not too soft.

Once the peanuts have reached the desired consistency, you can remove them from the heat and strain them through a sieve. After a few minutes, they will have cooled down and can be enjoyed immediately.


If you want your boiled peanuts to be as juicy as ours, you can reduce the liquid during the cooking process. However, it is important to make sure that the peanuts do not burn.

Enjoy your meal!
