Roasted Peanuts

I have become addicted to roasted peanuts. The flavor is wonderful and nothing like the peanuts you buy in the store. Begin with a cup or two of raw peanuts.Pour into a baking pan with sides. Be sure all the peanuts are sitting on the bottom of the pan. If you roast 2 cups at a time use a large baking pan so there's room enough for the peanuts to be in a single layer.

Place in a 300-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. The nuts need to be stirred every 5-minutes so they do not burn. I usually just shake the pan.

Bake until the peanuts are brown. Be sure to watch closely because the peanuts can and will burn very quickly.

The smell of roasted peanuts is wonderful. We like them plain but if you like salted peanuts simply place a small amount of oil, perhaps a tablespoon, in your pan; stir until all the nuts touch the oil; sprinkle with salt and roast.

You can roast them in the microwave too.. in shell or not.. when we drive down to the farm I always stop at a country store and buy raw peanuts in the shell then roast them as wanted in a paper lunch bag..
