In an effort to save 1 dollar per pound, I took up the daunting task of trying to make my own honey roasted peanuts… from dry roasted peanuts. Let it be known, this is not a simple task.
Wednesday, I made my first attempt. a little butter, a little honey, a little water, plenty of sugar, and 30 minutes in the oven… and out came some delicious peanuts. sadly they weren’t as crunchy as the true honey roasted peanut. One might say they were ‘tender.’ So last night I tried again. This time, I would sautee the peanuts.
Bad idea #1: trying to sautee honey roasted peanuts.
