Savory Jungle Peanuts πŸ₯œ

I have to be honest, I am a sucker for peanuts…unfortunately most peanuts are a no-go since they are very moldy and are actually a legume.

I recently discovered a heirloom variety of peanuts called jungle peanuts, they are slightly purple in color and taste very similar to the modern variety. Good news is, they are essentially mold free 🀩

I would say that they have a more earthy taste than regular peanuts, so we are giving them a savory roast today πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³

It’s important to roast nuts on a low temperate so that the polyunsaturated fats do not oxidize. I’m doing a low and slow roast at 200Β°F for an hour.

I think garlic and herb seasoning goes will with just about everything so here we go 🀩

To make these you need:

Jungle peanuts (or another earthy nut such as walnuts, Sancha Inchi, Macadamia or Almond) πŸ₯œ

Ghee 🧈

Garlic and herb seasoning – I used Pizza Party from Burlap and Barrel πŸ§„

How to:

Preheat the oven to 200Β°F

Melt a little bit of ghee and toss the nuts in it. This is so that the coating sticks and that the nuts crisp up a little. Coat with garlic and herb seasoning and throw them onto a baking dish lined with parchment paper! I had some extra coating left over so I tossed in some walnuts at the end πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Bake for about an hour or until crispy and enjoy as a fat-fueled snack πŸ™ŒπŸ»
