Oven Roasted Peanuts

"This is my favorite way of 'doing peanuts'. Always popular at parties, the next two recipes make fine gifts." Marjorie Standish

I thought I was picking an easy recipe this morning, but boy was I wrong! I guess it wasn't that it was difficult, more that it seemed to take a long time. The most time consuming part of it all was shelling the peanuts. When all is said and done, it is a delicious recipe. Just make sure if you are going to make it that you have some time on your hands.

First place some peanuts in a pan, then cover them with boiling water 

Once they have cooled and you are able to handle the peanuts, the long process begins! 
Start to crack them open and pick out the nuts. 

Allow the peanuts to dry on a paper towel. 

When you are done with picking the nuts out of the shells, and after they have dried,
place the nuts on a sheet pan and cover with oil and butter and roast in the oven. 

When they look good and brown, place in a brown paper bag with salt. Shake to coat, then cut the bag open and allow to cool. Finally you are ready to enjoy! 

Fresh oven roasted peanuts!
