This may seem like a lame recipe, but after roasting my own peanuts, I will never go back! Whoever is out there doing the roasting for us has been doing a crap job of it.
I originally did it because I wanted to control the extra ingredients. I didn’t like a lot of the offered oils in commercial peanuts, and usually the salt was either too much or too little. But what I didn’t expect was a rich, full flavor that was more akin to peanut butter. And they are deliciously fragrant! I pack a small bag of them in my lunch and usually smell them before putting it away (if no one’s looking that is. Weirdo!!!).
- 1/2 lb of raw peanuts (they need to be RAW!)
- 1 tablespoon of water
- sprinkle of sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350˚.
Spread the peanuts in a single layer on a baking sheet (I usually need two).
Add the water and salt and mix around, coating the peanuts evenly.
Put in the oven for 18-25 minutes, depending on desired doneness.
Let cool (the peanuts will continue to cook while left on the baking sheet).
