How to Roast Raw Unshelled Peanuts


Convert bland raw peanuts into a flavorful snack by roasting them in their shells. "The Science of Good Food" notes that the high fat content of peanuts leads some to think of these legumes as nuts. But peanuts do not meet the official definition of a nut as a hard-shelled tree seed. Although botanically different, roasting peanuts mirrors the process used for roasting nuts. Leaving the shell intact before heating prevents burning, since the shell protects the inner peanuts.
