We just used to shell them and stick them in the oven for a wee while (sorry can't mind temperature and time) then rub them in a dish towel to remove the papery skin. Next just salt to taste. :)

How to Roast Peanuts

If you've never tried roasting your own peanuts at home, here's your opportunity. Here are some important things to note about roasting your own peanuts:

It's fast -- you can roast peanuts in 15-25 minutes.
After you roast your peanuts, you can experiment with seasoning them.
Keep your raw peanuts in a cool, dry place (below 70 degrees Fahrenheit). Peanuts will keep indefinitely if kept frozen in a tightly-closed container.Peanut Preparation: Removing the Skins from Raw Shelled Peanuts Before you roast your peanuts, you'll want to remove the skins. There are three ways to do this:

Freeze the raw shelled peanuts overnight and then slip the skins off with your fingers.
Roast the raw shelled peanuts in an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 3-5 minutes, cool for a few minutes then slip the skins off with your fingers.
"Blanch" your raw shelled peanuts by putting them in boiling water and let them stand for about 3 minutes. Drain them and set them on a paper towel to dry.For roasting in a conventional oven:
Place your shelled or in-shell raw peanuts one layer deep in a shallow baking pan. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place the baking pan in the oven. If you're roasting shelled peanuts then cook them for 15-20 minutes. If you're roasting up some in-shell peanuts, then cook them for 20-25 minutes.
After the peanuts are cool, season them as you wish with salt or other seasonings, and they're ready to be enjoyed!

Tip: Remove your peanuts two or three minutes before the recommended time -- peanuts continue to cook after they're taken out of the oven.

Always season roasted shelled peanuts as soon as they're removed from the oven. So which seasonings, you might ask, are the most popular?
• table salt
• onion salt or powder
• curry powder
• seafood seasoning
• popcorn salt
• paprika
• cajun seasoning
• cinnamon • seasoned salt
• chili powder
• jalapeno seasoning
