    • Raw Peanuts - 2 lbs.
    • Salt - 3/4 cup
    • Onion
    • Jalapeno
    • Ham


    Green peanuts are preferred, but they were moldy at the store, so dried raw peanuts will work, but take longer to boil. Any salt will do, I use non-iodized table salt. You can use iodized, but your water will be cloudy. Onion, Jalapeno and Ham are all optional. I just quarter the onion, it will pretty much dissolve. I halve the jalapenos, makes them easier to avoid if you want to. This doesn't really make them "hot", it just adds some spicy flavor. Ham, salt pork, swine of some kind, again for flavor. Throw it all in a pot and boil, boil, boil... I usually start them the evening before we want some of the emperor's candy, let them boil for a few hours. Turn them off over night and start them back the next morning. Make sure to keep adding water as needed. Boil 'till done (6+ hours, don't think you can reasonably go too long).

    I like to do them outside on the deck. They are out of the way and there's not a pot boiling on the stove for hours on end. Although I put some measurements, the main thing is to have salty water, like the ocean and raw peanuts. Do not attempt with roasted peanuts.

    Yep. You're from Georgia.

    Never had 'em, but I used to work with a woman from GA that talked about them all the time (we were working in NH, so she was far from home).

    And, if my memory isn't too far degraded, it's pronounced much along the lines of bolled peanuts (somewhere between balled and bowled).

    They are all gone now. Sorry. You'll want to make the trip for a low country boil.

    Do you boil them in the shell or do you shell them first?
