raw peanuts, in shells
Someone mistakenly gave us a bag of raw peanuts that he thought were roasted. What to do with nasty, raw peanuts? Allrecipes to the rescue! My peanuts only took about 13 minutes to roast. Warm, fresh roasted peanuts--yum! I might even consider deliberately buying raw peanuts in the future.
I tried it but did not find the taste to be anything special... just a little better than raw
Good recipe! It's best to stir once during roasting so that all peanuts are evenly roasted. Thanks!
Quick, easy way to roast some peanuts. The package of raw peanuts only had a recipe for boiling 'em. Thanks for sharing this, they were at hit at work.
Worked great, but you really do have to watch them closely towards the end or they'll burn.
This recipe worked just like she said it would and my husband loved them.
I think the warning about the suddenness should be stronger. The color of the peanuts wasn't a reliable indicator, as there was variation between the initial brownness and rate of color change between peanuts. I baked some raw peanuts in my oven for 15 minutes and found that they were overdone and tasted burnt. I tried another batch for 12 minutes with the same disappointing results. Finally, I did a systematic experiment where I removed a peanut to taste at exactly 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 minutes. I found that 8 and 9 minute peanuts were underdone, 11 and 12 minute peanuts were overdone, and the 10 minute peanuts were just right. It's that sensitive!
