I have been making boiled peanuts like the ones I get at the boathouses in FL. I was told to use raw peanuts, which is hard to find in Ohio. On my last trip to Florida, they told me to use regular peanuts. I did and they turned out fine. I also tried it with dry roasted peanuts and it did not work.

I grew up on Miami, my parents were from georgia...I can remember summers spent with cousins in the tobacca fields and I remember great big black iron pots at the family reunion with greens and another with boiled peanuts..they were good times! There was always a huge slab of smoked meat in the pot of peanuts...and my folks would always start a pot with smoked meat and hot peppers for those who like life "Spiced up" a bit. I still fix mine that way altho we don't have them often, Try it..especially if you are one who doesn't care for boiled peanuts..these will change your mind I hope! It is difficult for me to give the correct quantity of water and salt opposed to the peanuts as I never measure.
