1-2 tbsp kosher salt 1/4 lb bacon 1 lb raw in-shell peanuts 12 cups water Cook the bacon until it's just beginning to crisp up and has rendered a lot of the fat. My crockpot has a "roast/sear" setting that lets you do this right in the pot, but if you don't have that setting or if you are making this on the stovetop, you can cook the bacon separately. Crumble up the bacon and put the bacon and the rendered fat into the pot. Add the peanuts, the water, and the salt and cook on high for at least 12 hours and as long as 24. The shells and the peanuts should be soft and almost mushy but still hold their shape when they're done. These are addictive and 1lb probably isn't really enough. I'd recommend doubling or even tripling the recipe if you have a crockpot big enough. Bacon In the pot: Done!
Kamado Roasted Peanuts Going to the Petit Le Mans car race thus weekend. Roasted peanuts are necessary. When one has a Kamado how does one roast things?. On the Kamado with smoke of course. 2 1/4 lbs raw in the shell peanuts. Indirect heat at 350 degrees as best you can hold the temps given the number of times you need to open the lid in a short cook. Pecan wood at start and some hickory at the end. These are a dry roast. Just raw peanuts spread on pan in single layer. To fit two trays in Big(Red)Joe when using the grill extender rack the top tray needed to be round. How do we do the swap? To facilitate transfer of the peanuts as they roasted from top to bottom to get even cooking I used a second rectangular half sheet pan as a transfer pan for the round pan contents. Rotate pans (well actually rotate the peanuts from pan to pan in this case ) about every 5 minutes because unless you use a double deflector the bottom pan might scorch the nuts. If using a double deflector swap in 10 minute intervals. Start checking peanuts for doneness by tasting samples from both trays at 20 minute point. Cook until slightly underdone as they will carryover cook. Shake the pans to roll the nuts over periodically also. Cool and enjoy! Here are the pics... Smoke Gets In Yours Eyes The Finished Product Dry Roasted Peanuts - There is a smokiness in the shell and a bit in the peanuts. It will be interesting to see what overnight in the closed bag does for the hint of smoke in the nut itself Bagged and Ready for the Races (oops, some escaped - they tasted good)
