Florida Boiled Peanuts

Growing up in Florida, boiled peanuts could be found everywhere at farmers markets, old fellas sitting on roadsides, grocery stores, gas stations -everywhere! Boiled peanuts are a great snack for outdoor parties or just a treat while watching TV with the family. They are unique in taste and texture from a roasted peanut and have the nostalgic appeal of our childhood. This recipe is our take on some of our favorite Florida flavors with some Those Florida Guys thrown in for a kick! We used a slow cooker, but it can be altered for a stockpot and stovetop. Give these peanuts a try and let us know what you think!

Those Florida Guys seasonings used in this recipe:

Yields: 1 Batch | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Total Time: 12-14 Hours


2 lbs. peanuts (raw, shell-on)

2 garlic cloves (minced)

2 jalapeños (sliced in half lengthwise)

8 oz. sour orange juice (sub 4 oz. orange juice+2 oz. lemon juice+2 oz. lime juice)


2 tbsp. annatto powder (sub smoked paprika)

4 tbsp. Those Florida Guys FL Fin & Fowl

2 tbsp. Those Florida Guys FL All-Purp

2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

4-6 tbsp. kosher salt

cilantro leaves (for garnish)


1 | Rinse the peanuts in a large colander to remove any dirt or debris and let them drain.

2 | In a slow cooker, mix the salt, sour orange, garlic, jalapeños, annatto, FL All-Purp, and apple cider vinegar.

3 | Add the peanuts to the slow cooker and enough water to fully cover the peanuts. **The peanuts will float at first, but that is okay**

4 | Set the slow cooker to high, give the mixture a good stir, put the lid on and walk away.

5 | The peanuts will cook for between 10-14 hours, depending on how hot your slow cooker gets. Check them every few hours to see if more water is needed and if you need to adjust the cooking temperature.

**we like to let these go overnight**

6 | After about 10 hours, add the FL Fin & Fowl, mix into the brine along with 1-2 tbs. kosher salt, and let cook at least one more hour for the flavors to absorb.

7 | Once done, turn the slow cooker off and let sit for 1-2 hours. This is when the magic happens; the peanuts will stop cooking and begin to decompress from the cooking and absorb more of the brine flavors. The longer they sit, the better.

8 | For doneness, look for a dark color shell and soft, yet firm inside texture.

9 | Serve in vessel of your choice. Ladle the juice over the top and garnish with the cilantro for extra flavor.

10 | Best served warm, but these can hold in the refrigerator for 10 days in an airtight container. Keep some of the brine in the storage container to keep them moist.
