Rinse the peanuts properly, then transfer them to the boiling pot. Add salt and water, stir until completely dissolved.
Turn on medium heat, bring the pot to a boil. Let it boil and simmer for 3 hours.
Fish the peanuts out and there you've done the job. Pop one peanut to check if it's as soft as you want. Otherwise, return them back to the water and continue to boil, pause halfway to check until you’ve got your desired consistency.
