Has anyone roasted raw peanuts in the shell? I got some from my grocery store today and googled how to roast them. Rinse off, pat dry, put them in a single layer on a baking sheet & bake @ 350 for approx. 25 minutes. I did as directed. They didn't smell like roasted peanuts so I let them bake for another 10 minutes. Took them out & opened one, they were still moist so I put them back in the oven & baked for another 10 minutes. Altogether 45 minutes of baking. My oven is cooking everything else correctly so it's not the oven. The peanuts are still soft & moist. You don't get that snappy crunch out of them.
Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

I've never tried roasting peanuts, Ann, so can't help there -- but I thought all you Floridians ate boiled peanuts! (which, I might add, I tried once and thought were pretty disgusting Sticking tongue out Rolling on the floor laughing )

I can certainly see where people might not like them.
I loves me boiled peanuts Sandy. Um, um GOOD! Drooling Drooling Drooling
But at the present time I am not allowed to eat boiled peanuts so that's why I was wanting to roast them.

Hilarious! That's probably why she is asking about roasted peanuts.

LOL, Carol -- could be !

Well, I looked at probably all the same recipes on the internet as you did, Ann, and they all say pretty much the same thing, and that the "peanuts will continue to cook and get crunchy" after you take them out of the oven. But, apparently they didn't do that for you. I really hate when that happens! I get all my "roasted in the shell" peanuts at "peanut night" at a local bar -- much easier.

Perhaps the ambient humidity is too high to complete the crunching process?

I have concluded the peanuts were too immature. The nuts hadn't filled out the shells. Many were like baby nuts inside the shells. That would be great for boiling but as far as roasting goes, they were too soft & wet.
