Wash and drain the raw peanuts to remove any dirt.
Add the peanuts to the pressure cooking pot along with the salt, Cajun seasoning and water to cover. If you like, you can place the trivet that comes with the Instant Pot over the peanuts to make sure they stay immersed in the water.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the valve to seal. Cook on high pressure for 30 minutes, if you prefer tender and crunchy peanuts. For soft peanuts, cook for 60 minutes at high pressure. When the cook time ends, let the pressure release naturally for 30 minutes.
Open the lid and allow the peanuts to sit in the cooked salty water for an hour. Serve and enjoy.
