Step 1

Wash the peanuts thoroughly to remove any dirt and excess debris.

Step 2

Add the peanuts, salt, and five spice powder (or whole spices) to the pressure cooker. Add enough water until the peanuts are fully submerged. Place a trivet or other pressure cooker safe object on top of peanuts to ensure that all of the peanuts are underneath the water. Note 1

Step 3

Close the pressure cooker and set it to high pressure for 60 minutes. Release once finished.

Step 4

Optional: soak the peanuts for a few hours before cooking to reduce the cooking time. Add the peanuts, salt, and five spice to a large pot, and add enough water to submerge the peanuts. Note 1

Step 5

Bring the water to a boil and boil the peanuts for 3 hours, or 2 hours if pre-soaked.

Step 6

To further reduce the cooking time, you can also slightly crack the peanuts open on one end. Then, you would only need to boil the peanuts for about 1 to 1.5 hours.

Step 7

Let the peanuts cool before storing in a container with the salty/spiced water. The peanuts taste best after soaking in the brine overnight, as they will absorb more flavor.

Step 8

Store the peanuts in the brine for up to one week in the refrigerator.
