DifficultyIntermediatePrep Time1 hr 20 mins
 ¾ cup Shelled Peanuts
 1/16 tsp Salt
 1 tsp Water

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit


On a baking sheet, spread raw peanuts in a single layer.


In a small bowl, stir together the salt and water; sprinkle the mixture on the peanuts evenly.


Place the baking sheet in the oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn peanuts every 10 minutes to ensure even roasting. When roasted, turn off oven and keep the peanuts in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.


Remove from oven and set aside to cool.


Once completely cool, enjoy this crunchy snack and store the remaining in a sealed container.

Chef's Tip:

Roast peanuts in a large quantity and store in an air tight container to serve your guest before dinner. Limit portion size to about 1 oz of peanuts (~1/4 cup) per serving.
