My husband loves salted peanuts in the shell but often, by the time they reach the grocery store, they are stale. Living in the South, my local produce market sells raw roasting peanuts. And voila, after some experimentation, we've got an amazing snack. It's not hard to make, the actual roasting time is 30 minutes, but getting to that stage just takes time - days, in fact, unless you've got a food dryer-dehydrator, perhaps. But, if you can get your hands on fresh raw peanuts, it's worth the wait. Do not think that you can bring the nuts home from the store and much on them during your movie the same night. It won't work.
