Default Raw Peanuts

When I was at the grocery store the other day, I grabbed a one-pound
bag
of in-the-shell peanuts on a whim. Last night, I settled down to
watch
something on TV, opened the bag to snack and ...

bleah.

Looking more closely at the bag, they were *raw* peanuts. They were
soft and not very flavorful, tasting a bit like raw dried peas (no
surprise
there, eh?)

Anyway, today I roasted them (15 minutes in a 365 degree oven was
about
right - 10 minutes was still too raw, 20 was towards burnt) and they
tasted
fine, albeit, of course, salt-less.

My question is: What can one do with raw peanuts other than turning
them
into cooked peanuts?

I believe raw peanuts are sold for the purpose
of making boiled peanuts. Very popular snack
in the Deep South and in Hawaii. I've had
the Hawaiian version and I've made them myself,
and they are pretty good.

Boiled peanuts are boiled in the shell.
Most folks accidentally buy raw but shelled peanuts, I think?
Do we know which one the OP has?

Raw peanuts are used in baking here, specifically for a type of biscuit
(cookie) called "peanut brownies" (which aren't brownies).

You would still have to roast them, but peanut butter made in the food
processer is wonderful.

I remember someone making a Peanut Stew that was from Africa .. it was
amazing ... don't have a rec though.

Goomba doesn't have WebTV. It's easy to miss a word or phrase here and
there if you read a post very quickly.

Shelled raw peanuts is what you use to make peanut brittle. The peanuts
cook in the 300 syrup. I imagine if you tried to make peanut brittle
with roasted peanuts they would burn.

"a one-pound bag of in-the-shell peanuts " suggests that the OP has
peanuts in the shell.

Yes, thank you Jill. That is exactly what happened.
I have no clue where the WebTV comes into this?

I make boiled peanuts from time to time. Easy to make, just get a
large stock pot with about 3 gallons of water in there, a lot of salt
and a ham hock, and a pound or two of raw peanuts and boil it on high
about 3 hours. You'll know they're done when you crack the shells
open and the peanuts have a little crunch, with about the consistency
of chickpeas.

My grandmother used to boil them that way, then spread them on baking
sheets and roast them in the oven 'til dry.
