Roasted Peanuts

The peanuts roasted here were from the sack Driskel Cotton Farms gave us in 2019. They were quite dry from the sack sitting on the floor in the laundry room for the past couple of months. They turned out good–not to dried out.

  1. Filled the 1/4-Sheet pan with one layer of peanuts in their shells
  2. Shook salt on the dry peanuts although it did not make any difference to the nuts inside the shell.
  3. Put into the preheated 350-degree oven for 30 minutes.

Next time try spraying some with PAM then sprinkle the salt. Maybe the salt would stick to your fingers while shelling add to the taste of the nut once it falls out of the shell.

Next time try this.

Oven Roasted Peanuts Recipe

1 tablespoon kosher salt
3 cups water
2 cups raw peanuts in the shells

Dissolve kosher salt in water. Place the peanuts in the water. Place a bowl on top to keep the peanuts submerged. Soak for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Strain the peanuts. Pat dry and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast at 300 degrees for 35- 45 minutes. The peanuts will be slightly underdone (a little chewy) when you remove them from the oven, but they will continue to cook once you remove them. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Serve warm.
