This is my Dad's recipe and could not be easier. Just remember, turn off the oven and don't take them out or even open the door for 1 hour.

if i could have given this zero stars i would have. my peanuts were burnt beyond salvageable. i followed the directions exactly. after ruining one batch i looked for some more recipes that suggest cooking for a much shorter period of time on a lower temp. i will try another hopefully successful recipe. this one was a big let down.

Trick here is to know when your oven is adequately "pre-heated"....which is difficult with my oven. However following the directions the peanuts were no longer raw at the end of the hour but I probably could have left them in another five or so minutes--or preheated my oven longer. Very simple recipe which works. Read More

This works better if you put the peanuts in the oven then turn it on. Just be sure to turn the oven off when it reaches 500 degrees then leave them for an hour. Read More

I'm almost 70 years young. I've been cooking for over 60 years. Yes I began learning to cook at about the age of 8 years old. I live in Georgia USA. I have grown peanuts for most of my life. I think I know just a wee bit about both cooking and about peanuts. 1. All ovens do NOT reach the same temperature according to the indicator be it digital or manual. USE a "calibrated" oven thermometer to be sure of the correct temperature. 2. There are numerous varieties of peanuts which vary in size. They also vary in the amount of "dryness" with which you are beginning. 3. Read the directions for the recipes THREE times before you begin to cook ANYTHING. 4. Follow the directions before you even consider changing the recipe. Just a few words from the ancient cook. Read More

Did everyone who burnt the peanuts read the directions thoroughly? The oven is PREHEATED to 500 and then TURN IT OFF FOR 1 hour. Just checking:) Read More

The temperature is too high. 400 degrees is far better than 500. Read More
