When in the South...

Today I did something I never ever thought I would do. I roasted my own peanuts. Our winter CSA gave us a bag of green unshelled peanuts and when I asked the farm owner how to cook them, she said just put them in the oven and roast them. I always thought roasting peanuts would be more difficult, after all you pay so much for roasted peanuts by Planters. But nope, this was so simple and something I will definitely do again!

Before roasting

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put the peanuts on a cookie sheet, making sure to pick out leaves, stems, and shrivelled peanuts.
Put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes

Take them out before they are completely done, as they will continue to cook in the shell.
After they have cooled, put them in an airtight container.
That's it. Nothing fancy, not a lot of steps. And my husband loved them! Hope we get more this week!

All done, cooled, and ready to eat!
