Basic Boiled Virginia Peanuts:
1 1/2 cups salt, divided, plus more to taste (Get creative and use your favorite spices)
2.5 lb. Royal Oak Peanuts raw in the shell Virginia peanuts
Dissolve 1/2 cup salt in 2 gallons water in a 3-gallon stockpot; add peanuts. Soak 8 hours or overnight.
You do not have to soak overnight, but it will reduce the cook time by several hours.
Drain water and refill pot with water and remaining 1 cup salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, covered, 5 to 8 hours or until peanuts are tender, adding water as needed to keep peanuts covered; stir occasionally. When the peanuts have boiled 2-3 hours, check for texture and saltiness. If the peanuts are not salty or spicy enough for your preference, add salt or spice in 1/4-cup increments. Once you have your desired saltiness or flavor turn off heat, and let soak 1 hour. Check peanuts for seasoning every hour. Once cool, drain and dig in. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer. Boiled peanuts will keep up to 7 days in the refrigerator or several months in the freezer.
