Cracking the Shell: My Recipe for Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts

Well, butter my biscuits, y’all! I reckon it’s about time I let you in on my fail-safe recipe for Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts, and trust me, it’s a real Southern treat.

Look here, nothing delights my taste buds quite like a handful of these salty morsels. They’re the bee’s knees in my book! Can you smell the delicious, earthy aroma? Just the thought of chowing down on these tender nuggets has me feelin’ as happy as a clam at high tide.

Okay, enough chatter. Let’s cut to the chase. Now, making boiled peanuts in an Instant Pot is as easy as pie. I mean, you hardly have to lift a finger! All you gotta do is chuck green peanuts, sea salt, and enough water to cover the peanuts in the huge belly of your Instant Pot. Give it a twirl, and before you know it, your Instant Pot is cookin’ up a feast!

Once the lid’s tight as a drum, crank the dang thing up to ‘Pressure Cook’ and set it for 60 minutes. Make sure the steam vent’s sealed up tighter than a tick, or you’ll have a hot mess on your hands. And you know how I hate fixing a hot mess when I’m up to my elbows in cookin’.

Phew! Once that timer rings, your peanuts are done. They need to rest for a while, though. Let me tell you, they’re already screamin’ your name, but hold your horses! All good things come to those who wait.

At last, when the steam’s all out, open up the Instant Pot with caution. The smell should knock your socks off. Those juicy peanuts make it worth the wait, don’t they?

So, quit twiddlin’ your thumbs and head to your kitchens, folks. Cooking’s a piece of cake, especially when you have an Instant Pot and a hankering for boiled peanuts!

Let’s Get To Work!

– Gather your ingredients: 1 pound of green raw peanuts, 1/2 cup of sea salt, and enough water to cover the peanuts in the Instant Pot.
– Start by rinsing your green raw peanuts in cool water until water runs clear. Toss away any peanuts that seem damaged.
– Throw the peanuts into the steel container of your Instant Pot.
– Add sea salt to the peanuts.
– Pour water into the pot, making certain that it fully immerses the peanuts. Keep in mind that peanuts float, so they might require an extra push to sink.
– Secure the Instant Pot lid, ensuring the steam vent is closed.
– Set the device to ‘Pressure Cook’ and the timer for 60 minutes.
– Once the cooking time ends, allow the Instant Pot to discharge the pressure naturally. This might take additional 10-20 minutes.
– Carefully remove the lid after the pressure has fully released and let the peanuts cool a bit.
– Use a slotted spoon to serve the boiled peanuts. Don’t forget to taste-test and add more salt if required.
– Enjoy your Instant Pot boiled peanuts right away, or store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. They are usually best when enjoyed within a week.

That was fresh!
