How long will boiled peanuts last?

srr Dec 13, 2006 10:11 PM

We boiled a bunch of peanuts over the weekend and they weren't all eaten. We put them in a container in the fridge. They still taste good, but I wonder how long they will last? Any one know?

    You can freeze them and they'll last pretty indefinitely...

      I was more wondering how long they will be good to eat. Can I leave them in the fridge for the next week and just slowly make my way through them? Or will they go bad? Is it very obvious when they go bad?

      Whenever I make a big batch I freeze what's left over.

        We've never had them around long enough to find out. :-)

          That's how it goes at my house, too. I have a can in the pantry, though, for moments of boiled peanut desperation.

          Can you post a recipe? I had them for the first time last spring and have craved them ever since. I saw raw peanuts in the asian market today and was wondering how I could make them (google I know!). TIA!!

            We just boiled them for a few hours(4?) in VERY salty water. I know that traditionalists in the South would boil them even longer, some say days, but I don't like them that soft.

              The peanuts I tried were from a road stand in Ga. So that is all you do? Salted water? No spice at all? Sounds too good to be true!!! Thank you!!

            We throw in a handful of Korean red pepper sometimes, too.
