  • Fill a big bowl or bucket with water, then dump in your raw peanuts. Pick out any stems or leaves as you run your hands through the peanuts and water. Rinse and do this several times until the water runs clear of dirt.
  • Add salt, vinegar, peanuts, and water into the Crockpot
  • Add seasoning, if you want them a little spicy. Stir
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 22 to 24 hours. You may need to add a little more water before they are finished cooking so keep an eye on them. Test taste if the peanuts are soft. If not, cook for an additional hour and test again.
  • Southern style serving: Put peanuts and a little juice in a plastic bag. Slip that bag in a brown paper lunch sack to serve.
    Or you can just serve in a bowl, be sure to add a little juice, and give everyone plenty of napkins.
