Peanuts....Just Wondering

I roasted some peanuts tonight in my oven to send to a friend in California (he says that he cannot get the small red peanuts out there) and was wondering if anyone had every done any on the Egg. We rednecks eat a lot of peanuts, and it just made me think.

    Yep, i'll see if I can track down the recepie I used over the weekend and post it...... they came out surprisingly well.

    Gloria,[p]Yep. All you have to do is put the raw peanuts in a pan and spread them out in a single layer, dome temp at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes. Toss the peanuts in the pan every 7 to 10 minutes while roasting. I roasted peanuts at Eggtoberfest 2001.[p]Puj

    I love roasted peanuts and tried some on my Egg when I first brought it home. They were good but not great, probably because I didn't know the difference between direct and indirect or low and slow. I promised to do it again but never did. Been buying 'em in the store already cooked. Not real happy with them but they serve to fill me up.[p]Your post reminded me to re-try using my improved skills. In the meantime, I ran across this recipe for those who like salted-in-the-shell peanuts. [p] " Roasted Peanuts In The Shell "

    Prepare a brine solution of 8 oz. salt per gallon of water. Bring the solution to a boil and add peanuts. Remove the pan from the heat and let peanuts sit in the brine until it cools. Remove and drain nuts. Dry the peanuts in the sun until they are very dry. You may need to store them in the house overnight as the humidity rises during the the night. Place one or two layers of unshelled peanuts in a flat pan and place them in a preheated oven (350) for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let the nuts brown excessively. Store in a dry, cool place.[p]I'm going to try soaking them in the brine (I may spice it up a wee bit) then roast some of them to see if I can get a roasted/salted-in-the-shell-peanut. Be fun trying anyway.[p]Spring Chicken
