2 lb. raw peanuts, in the shell
3 Tbsp. salt
1 bag Zatarain’s Crab & Shrimp Boil
1 Tbsp. ground red pepper

•Rinse the peanuts very well under cold water, then place in a large pot.
•Add enough water to almost fill the pot, the salt, the Zatarain’s seasoning, and the red pepper, then bring to a boil over high heat.
•Cover, reduce heat to medium-high, and boil for 3 to 4 hours, or until the shelled peanuts are soft. Add additional water to the pot throughout the cooking process, if necessary.
•Drain and let cool slightly before serving.
