We bought raw peanuts by mistake and I didn't know what to do with them until I found this! They taste great. My husband says they taste like peanut butter. :-) The first time I made them I tried sprinkling them with salt but it just fell off. The second time I made them, I soaked the peanuts in water with about 1 cup of salt disolved in it. I soaked them in the salt water overnight. Then I set them out to dry for a few hours. I adjusted the cooking time a little longer at 275 degrees to account for the extra moisture. They turned out great. Same great taste as the original recipe, but with a light salty taste. Next time I might add even more salt and soak a little longer. Either way, Sharon's recipe is wonderful!
I too bought raw peanuts by mistake! Since we are on low-no sodium diets I didn't add the optional salt! Thanks for posting!
This is a perfect recipe for roasted peanuts. First time I tried it I left them in the oven for 15 min. Not done enough for me. The second time I tried 20 min and they were perfect. Just what I was looking for. Thanks!
Did a search for roasted peanuts on recipezaar and this recipe was exactly what I needed. Thanks for sharing!
This works just perfectly.... IF you don't forget about the second batch you put in the oven. :). First batch I used red paper, raw peanuts, for 20 mins exactly and they were perfect. Did the same with raw cashews and made homemade peanut cashew butter in the Vitamix. Oh mah goodness! That roasted taste just can't be beat. Since I don't salt the nuts to roast, I added approx. 1/4 tsp during the grinding process to mix it in and help to bring that roasted goodness out when finished. It was perfect! Thanks for this so simple recipe! Edit: Forgot to add your stars! Thx for a great recipe. :)
