Use and Storage of Raw Peanuts
As with many raw agricultural food products, it is recommended that raw peanuts should be cooked before consumption. To maintain best eating quality, store peanuts in a cool dry place. For short-term storage (a few days) keep at or below 60 degrees F. For long-term storage, keep at 40 degrees or below. Peanuts may be stored in a tightly closed container in the freezer to maintain freshness for an extended period of time.
RECIPE FOR ROASTING PEANUTS IN CONVENTIONAL OVEN:
- Place Raw Peanuts, in shell or shelled, one layer deep in a shallow baking pan.
- Roast in a 350 degree oven - approximately 15-20 minutes for shelled peanuts and approximately 20-25 minutes for in-shell peanuts.
- Remove from heat just short of doneness desired as peanuts continue to cook as they cool. Season to taste. Times may vary with individual ovens.
CAUTION! THE PAN AND PEANUTS ARE VERY HOT!
