Crab Boiled Peanuts

Boiled peanuts are a southern tradition that northerners don't seem to appreciate.  Regular boiled peanuts are great but add some crab boil and they are better.

1  gallon
water

cup

salt

1 cup

Zatarain's liquid crab boil (total)

2 Lbs

raw green peanuts (dried peanuts in a bag are mealy when you boil them)

Mix the salt and to cup of crab boil ( cup if you want mild peanuts, cup for stronger peanuts) with the water and bring to a boil. Add the peanuts; reduce to a simmer and cover. Stir occasionally. For the next 2 to 4 hours add 1 Tbl of crab boil every half-hour. Check the peanuts after 2 hours to see if they are done. It may take as long as 4 hours to cook some peanuts. Drain.
