Sharon, I'm excited for you to try boiled (in Crab Boil) peanuts...using either the green or dry ones...Green ones should be all over your area!! ~~ Look for the dry powder....There are three...Regular, Spicy, and Pro. All are good, but the spicy is better than the regular, and the Pro Boil Rocks!!!
Liquid Boil is Ok. A lot of people use it...I find it has an "artificial" twang...Full disclosure.... I have a big bottle, and I've been guilty of using a small splash when boiling a sack of crawfish...but not with out a full jar of dry powder... and bags.
Don't let the size of the Dry powder jars intimidate you...The stuff has lots of uses....Good with just boiled corn, and can be used anywhere as a substitute for salt. Hush! don't tell anyone....
Try a little sprinkled on fried chicken as it comes out of the pot....
