I recently received a copy of Quick-Fix Southern by Rebecca Lang to check out.  I thumbed through all the mouth-watering recipes, and this Slow Cooker Boiled Peanuts recipe caught my eye.  Chicken Legs and I have never had boiled peanuts; I think that might actually be a sin here in the South!  We decided to give them a try.  I am so glad we did.  We both gave the peanuts two thumbs up.  Chicken Legs is totally addicted to these peanuts.  We took some of them to our tailgate last weekend, and I can assure you that we will be taking some to another tailgate this year.

Quick-Fix Southern is filled with over 100 quick and easy recipes.  It even has a whole chapter dedicated to tailgating!!  If you are in Birmingham, Rebecca Lang will be at Birmingham Bake and Cook Company on Tuesday, September 27, 2011.   She will be making several recipes from Quick-Fix Southern, including Stuffed Corn Bread, Skirt Steak with Vidalia Onion Chimichurri, Roasted Tomatoes and Parmesan Grits, and Double Chocolate Scoop Pie! The Double Chocolate Scoop Pie is next on my list to try! The class is $35 and is from 6:30-9:00pm.  Contact Birmingham Bake and Cook Company to register.

  1. we have never done them in a crock pot always outside on the big burner with the huge pot boiling away while we worked in the yard, or just had a nice cook out. Will absolutely be trying this today as we went to the peanut festival yesterday, and got a 10lb bag of raw peanuts…..

  3. First of all….WAR EAGLE!
    Second of all….I am missing my roadside stand boiled peanuts. The best ones are in between Dothan and a little past the Florida state line. Love them. I will be trying this out to get my fix before coming home in July.

  4. I love love love love love love love boiled peanuts! They take forever and a day to cook but they're worth it.

    I like to throw a bunch of cajun seasonings in with the salt to make them spicy.

  5. Now that I've started making Boiled Peanuts in the crock pot, I will never do it differently again. Too easy!

  6. yum! I can't wait to see how that double chocolate scoop pie turns out for you! That just sounds disgustingly right up my ally or tailgate 🙂 lol

  7. Kristi – I got the tablecloth at the Auburn bookstore on campus. You can find the fabric at the fabric store (at least in Auburn).

  8. I'm so surprised you've never had them! The best I've found are at the Peach Park in Clanton. I've never made my own, but I'm definitely trying now!

    1. Peanuts do NOT need to be green, but they DO need to be raw. Green indicates a state the peanuts are in from the time they're picked until shortly thereafter when they start to lose their moisture. Almost all of the boiled peanuts you buy elsewhere are made with raw, dried (i.e., not green) peanuts.

    2. I am originally from South Carolina, the green nuts do make better boiled p-nuts. We can't get green ones here and i have used the raw nuts you can get in the store. They are ok, but no way as good as green boiled p-nuts.

  9. O, don'tchaknow, I am gonna try this.
    When I was a little girl, street vendors sold these in downtown Dallas. Even at my olden age, I can STILL remember how delicious and warm they were. Thanks for the recipe.
