I was craving something sweet and salty last night and decided to tackle making homemade honey roasted peanuts (without the high fructose corn syrup in every brand in the store) and here’s what I came up with. I’m going to try another batch tonight with cashews… I can’t wait to try those!
2 cups raw peanuts
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp peanut oil
1/4 cup sugar (plus extra for dusting)
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the peanuts on a baking sheet and in a preheated oven for 10 minutes to gently toast/roast them. (If the peanuts are already roasted, skip this step)
Set the peanuts aside and let cool.
In a medium-sized pan add the honey, water and oil. Bring to a boil and add the peanuts. Stir around until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the nuts. About 10 minutes.
Transfer into a medium bowl and toss with the sugar and salt. Spread back on the baking sheet with wax paper, let cool.
