How To Reheat Boiled Peanuts: 3 Foolproof Methods

Boiled peanuts are a great snack, but they can get a bit soggy and the peanut meat may not stay intact.

Here is an easy way to reheat boiled peanuts that will ensure your boiled peanuts don’t go to waste!

How To Reheat Boiled Peanuts: 3 Foolproof Methods

Method 1: Reheating Boiled Peanuts In A Microwave

With this method, you will be using the microwave to reheat your boiled peanuts. This method is quick, easy, and efficient if you have only a small number of boiled peanuts to reheat.

Step By Step Instructions:

  1. You will start by placing a microwave-safe plate or large bowl in the microwave and adding a single layer of peanuts to the plate. You may use as many or as few as you’d like, but be sure to leave space between each one so they will reheat evenly.
  2. Place your cooked and cooled boiled peanuts in the microwave and heat at five-second intervals until they reach the desired consistency (the hotter you reheat your boiled peanuts, the more likely they are to explode).
  3. If your boiled peanuts do begin to pop, make sure to turn them every two seconds until they have finished popping once again. This should ensure your peanuts don’t get soggy and stay intact.

This is probably the fastest and easiest way to reheat boiled peanuts. There will be some loss of crunch, but if you were using older or stale peanuts, to begin with, it shouldn’t make too much of a difference. These peanuts should still taste great as long as you make sure not to overcook them!

Method 2: Reheating Boiled Peanuts In A Slow Cooker

This method is a bit more time-consuming than using the microwave, but it is a great way to ensure you do not overcook your boiled peanuts while still keeping them warm until they are ready to eat.

Step By Step Instructions:

  1. Combine 2 cups of your boiled peanuts with 1 cup of water in a slow cooker and turn the slow cooker on medium heat.
  2. After about five hours, your peanuts should have softened completely and have become too hard to eat. Turn off the slow cooker and stir in 1/4 cup of oil or melted butter and mix thoroughly before serving.

This method is a great way of ensuring you do not overcook your boiled peanuts while still keeping them warm until they are ready to eat. This method may take up to 6 hours, but it ensures you don’t overcook them along the way!

Method 3: Reheating Boiled Peanuts On A Stovetop

This method is a bit of a more labor-intensive way of reheating boiled peanuts. It ensures you don’t overcook your boiled peanuts, but it does take a bit of effort on your part to take care of the peanut sauce and prepare them properly!

Step By Step Instructions:

  1. You will start by cooking your dried, unsalted peanuts to an appropriate heat and then keeping them covered in water until they have softened as much as possible. I usually just boil my peanuts until they are soft, but you may want to test them to see when they have softened enough for you. After softening, drain and rinse the peanuts with cool water to stop the cooking process.
  2. In a small bowl, mix flaked salt with hot sauce until it forms a nice paste for dipping. If you do not have any hot sauce available, you can also use a mixture of melted butter and honey. The peanut sauce should have a slightly spicy taste to it.
  3. This final step is where you will add your boiled peanuts to their spicy salt mixture, mixing them in well until they are fully coated enjoy! I usually just eat them like chips or serve them as an appetizer with drinks!

This method is probably the most labor-intensive way of reheating boiled peanuts. It ensures you don’t overcook your boiled peanuts, but it does take a bit of effort on your part to take care of the peanut sauce and prepare them properly!
