Roasting Peanuts

We have peanuts growing in our yard.
They aren't ready for harvesting,
but we did find some at our local farmer's market.

Homemade peanut  butter is so much tastier
than store bought.
The first step to this yummy treat is roasting the nuts.
It's easy, quick,
and adds a depth of flavor to your nut butter.

Place unshelled peanuts on baking sheet
lined with parchment paper
and cook at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes.


  1. We are growing peanuts this year as an experiment and I was just wondering last night how to roast them up when they are ready.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. how neat that you have peanuts growing in your yard. going to have to favorite these instructions for peanut season down here

  3. Oooohhhhh yummy! I am so jealous. I love boiled peanuts and would love a way to get some fresh peanuts to boil. What a great find at the farmers market.

  4. Looks yummy! Have you ever had boiled peanuts? They are sooo good and here in NC very popular.

  5. Natalie-Best wishes with your peanut harvest!

    Kelly-They are worth growing, as they can be used in so many dishes as well as snacking on.

    Jane-I'll bet you could grow them up there!

    Megan-I actually can't have peanuts in the whole, they give me a tummy ache. But I love peanut butter! We have a lot of boiled peanut vendors here too along the roads.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
