No commercial product can ever taste as rich as fresh peanuts roasted at home. I find the brined nuts on the market particularly distasteful, the soaking destroying texture and taste.


  • 1 pound (450 g) peanuts, raw in the shell


    Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

    Put the peanuts on a wide baking sheet and place on the middle shelf of the preheated oven. Shake the pan every 5 minutes to prevent scorching on any one side. Peanuts will be done in 20 minutes or so depending on size and maturity.
