Insta Pot Boiled Peanuts

Hiker friends love boiled peanuts and we call boiled peanut lovers squirrels now. So I have been making them for few years now for our hikes. Now with insta pot they are much easier to make. Here’s how I made them in 6 quarter insta pot.

  • Soak raw dry peanuts for 10-12 hrs in insta pot only with trivet that comes with it on so that they stay in water else they will float.
    Rinse and add fresh water, salt. Needs lot of salt. You can taste water and it should taste good salty. You can also add spices you like.
    Pressure cook on high for 50 mins. And let it release naturally.
    Taste and if salt is less , add more and cook for a minute and natural release again so it has time to absorb more salt.
    Fun healthy snack to relax and chit chat with friends.
    If you have green peanuts (lucky you) then no need to soak. It should be done in 25-30 minutes.
    Peanuts are gluten free. So this is vegan gluten free snack. It will keep you full for a long time too.
    Enjoy!
