  • Place peanuts in the Instant Pot.
  • Add salt, red pepper flakes, and seasoning.
  • Add water to cover the peanuts.
  • Place the steamer rack for the Instant Pot on top of the peanuts to help weight them down.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot, check to see that the valve is in "sealing" position.
  • Set to "Pressure Cook" for 75 minutes.
  • Let do a natural pressure release for 30 minutes. Open the valve to release any remaining pressure and remove the lid. 


If using peanuts labeled "raw" they are fully matured and dried. Soak them overnight and then Pressure cook them for 90 minutes for best results.
