Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts

Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts

Prep Time: 5 mins. Cook Time: 1 hr. Natural Pressure Release: 30 mins. Servings: 10


2 pounds green peanuts

1/2 cup kosher salt

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar


Rinse the peanuts in cool water. Place in the Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker.

Add salt and vinegar and enough water to just cover the peanuts. For me, that was about 10 cups. Be cautious to not exceed the max fill line on your appliance. 

Place the lid on and seal. Cook on high pressure for 60 minutes, then turn the appliance off and allow the pressure to release naturally. Carefully remove the lid. Enjoy!

Stacey’s Recipe Notes

Check out the blog post at about the difference between green and raw peanuts. This recipe calls for green peanuts, but raw peanuts will work if that’s all you can find. If using raw peanuts, soak them overnight in cool water and cook them for 85 to 90 minutes, followed by a natural pressure release.
