Spicy Barbecue Pickled Peanuts

While every Southerner is familiar with boiled peanuts, we decided to pickle them and the result is amazing! They are incredibly delicious eaten on their own or added to salads, soups and wraps. We are canning a few half-pints of it and using the other for easy collard wraps, another recipe with pictures coming soon.

1 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup water

1. Combine all ingredients except peanuts and bring to a boil.

2. Add peanuts and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Peanuts are ready to can or store in the fridge. If storing in the fridge, let cool first and place in small container.

  1. Did you boil them in the shell first? De-shell then boil? None of the above, just picketed them raw? How many days before you can eat?

  2. I just bade 2 quarts canned. And a bunch loose ones just sitting in the fridge in a bowl. I had a bunch of left over brine after making pickles and had some raw peanuts. I’m a big fan of hot boiled peanuts. I have high hopes for these.
