Chinese Style Braised Peanuts

Chinese Style Braised Peanuts
This tasty snack takes nothing more than placing all the ingredients into a pot and allowing them simmer for a few hours. The peanuts are braised in soy, star anise, and a few more to create a snack with a lovely addictive flavour.
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 750 g raw peanuts
  • 3 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 dried orange peel pieces (or 1 fresh orange peel)
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 dried chillies
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons five spice powder
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large pot with eight cups of water. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down so that the braising liquid is just simmering. Add some water while cooking if necessary. Cook for around two and a half hours.
  2. Remove the peanuts from the heat and place in another container. Allow the peanuts to cool before storing in the refrigerator.
