Stacey’s Recipe Notes
I prefer raw green peanuts in this recipe, but raw dried peanuts work, too. When using raw dried peanuts, I recommend soaking them in cool water overnight before placing them in the slow cooker.
Most Creole seasonings have salt in them. If you use one that doesn’t, I suggest adding an additional 1/4 cup salt.
