Can some one explain to me the deal with boiled peanuts? I read a couple of recipes the other day and they sounded pretty good. One was cooked in a slow cooker with Cajun spices and the other one was cooked on the stovetop with just salt water. When they are done what consistency are they supposed to be? Hard like a roasted peanut or soft and squishy and after you drain them do you dry them out or are they wet ? When they are boiled in their shells I can't imagine all the liquid drains out of them.
