I would like to start my post today by welcoming a new Blogger friend to my blog. Welcome Joey, thank you for joining my blog, please sit back and enjoy the ride.
Get your peanuts!!!!! Tank came home after working at his friend Matt’s family farm, before the snow, with a brown grocery sack full of fresh peanuts grown on the farm.
What to do?
Well I cleaned the peanuts with warm water, and then placed the cleaned nuts in a pot of brine. The brine; 1 tablespoon of kosher salt, 2 cups of nuts, and 3 cups of water. Make sure the salt is dissolved, and then add the nuts. Let them soak for about 1 hour. Dump the water nut mixture in a colander and rinse lightly. Place the nuts on some paper towels and pat dry. Place the dried nuts on a cookie sheet in a 300 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, place the nuts in a moisture free container.
