Roasting your own peanuts is fun and easy. Roasted peanuts have a more intense flavor than raw peanuts and make ideal snacks for parties, seasonal events, and even for adding to some recipes. Follow these simple steps to roast your own peanuts at home. Enjoy.
Ingredients - Shelled or unshelled peanuts (as needed), Seasonings (to taste)
Arrange the peanuts on large, flat baking tray or cookie sheet lined with baking paper or foil. It is important that the peanuts are all sitting flat and in one layer, to ensure even roasting.
Remove from the oven. If you haven't already remove the skin from the peanuts and you still wish to do so, use the following nifty trick. Place the roasted peanuts in a jar or container and shake them, or into a clean dish towel and rub them. Take the jar, container, or towel outside and open them up and blow away the loose skins. There may be some that still require you to remove the skins by hand but that's up to you.
