Basic Oven Roasted Peanuts
Peanuts 101! This is a basic recipe for roasting peanuts gleaned from Chef2Chef. You may use as many peanuts as you want, the method is the same, just keep it one layer deep. The computer won't let me list one ingredient, so I have added salt. You may use or not.
- Ready In:
- Place raw peanuts, in shell or shelled, one layer deep in a shallow baking pan. Sprinkle salt over.
- Roast in a 350 degree F oven; 15 to 20 minutes for shelled and 20 to 25 minutes for in shell peanuts.
- Remove from heat just short of doneness desired, as peanuts continue to cook as they cool.

I’ve followed my moms recipe for years and our peanuts are always coveted. We don’t single layer. We buy the big bag of raw unshelled peanuts. Preheat oven to 325. Dump peanuts in a big roasting pan (mine is the big blue-granite oval one that is abt 6 inches deep), Roast at least 45 minutes, or until almost roasted to taste, stirring every 15-minutes.
My husband and I grow peanuts. Yesterday we pick a large amount of them. We washed them and let them sit for 4 hours. I put them in a large pan and baked them for 1 hour. They still weren’t ready. Sprinkled salt on them. Then threw them away. Where did I go wrong? We want to roast more peanuts but need to know where we went wrong. Please help Paula Armstrong
