Can you find raw peanuts?   In my area (east central Missouri) there are none - haven't been any since long before Christmas.   I do buy the raw peanuts in the shell and spend hours shelling them.  They are jumbo nuts, very fresh and very good but I sure ddon't want to spend so much time shelling them.   I bought four big bags of in the shell last night and I'll be shelling today.

LOL - I found some lovely shelled raw peanuts on the Internet.  The price was high but I tried to order a couple lbs and learned the shipping was over $15.00.

Sorry, Nancy, I haven't seen any raw, shelled peanuts in the grocery stores around here.  I'm sure that the specialty stores or places like Trader Joe's might have them but I don't get there too often.  Did you try asking at WalMart if they could order some for you?  Just a thought.

Thanks H.M. ....WalMart is where I do most of my shopping.  I've begged for bags of shelled peanuts and they have claimed to try but had no luck.   I've asked at the little independent grocery but no luck now.  They did have some at Christmas but they were so tiny and discolored that I wouldn't buy any.  I've finished shelling the 4 bags I bought yesterday.  Oh, what a miserable job.

Do you have a Whole Foods, Fresh Market or Trader Joes?  I reside in SC.  We have tons of farm stands that sell raw peanuts.  Have you done a search for a local 4h or local college extension service.  We have lots of agricultural sources in SC.  I would think in Missouri you would have lots of farms in the rural areas too?
We love to make boiled peanuts with the raw ones.  Yum...
Best of luck with your search.

Nancy, are you looking for raw Spanish peanuts? If so, I can buy them in bulk at a small, local grocery store. I'd love to help you out if it's Spanish peanuts that you want. Let me know!

Look in the produce section of your super market.

Verlee Embarassed I don't know the name ....I'm looking for the peanuts with red skins (that I carefully and patiently remove).  All the packages I buy just say "Raw Peanuts" ... neither the shelled ones I use to buy or the in-shells I buy now say anything about the variety.
I made two batches of the brittle last night and I'm so tickled with the way it looks and tastes ...... then I took the bags into the living room where I wouldn't see them and keep "tasting".

Nancy I could probably get them from the nut warehouse by me and I would be happy to send them to you.  The one price pack and ship box from the post office is not that much.  Now I have to ask...what are you needing raw nuts for?  Can you adjust your recipe and use the roasted ones?
You also might want to try an Asian market if you have one near you.  Some Asian recipes call for raw nuts.

Hi Nikki -- I'm making peanut brittle ... lots and lots of peanut brittle.  Last Saturday I was making my American Cheese Sandwiches for a ladies' meeting.  On a last minute whim I made a batch of peanut brittle as a little dessert. 
Whoa ...... that peanut brittle made a big hit and lots of people want some.
Sunday morning a woman who had not been at the meeting but she said she had heard about it and wanted some!

Roasted nuts would not work in such a recipe.   And there's no Asian market within many miles.
I have the 5 lbs (I bought another this morning) all shelled and separated into 1 1/4 cup piles then into zip lock freezer bags and then secured in a big freezer bag.

Your poor sore fingers!  The dust that must have been generated....
When you need more let me know I will check price and availability at the "nut house"

If they're for peanut brittle I'm pretty sure those are the Spanish peanuts. I'll see what I can do for you!

I thought I had posted this recipe before ........... fast, easy, simple, 


MICROWAVE PEANUT BRITTLE
Butter a piece of foil on a cookie sheet.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup white syrup
1 cup raw peanuts
1 tsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Put sugar and syrup in large microwave dish. Stir well.
'Wave uncovered on HI for 4 minutes.
Stir in peanuts. 'wave for 3 minutes.
Stir in vanilla and butter. 'wave 1 minute
Stir in baking soda, Stir hard and fast and quickly dump
onto buttered foil. Spread out. Cool and break into pieces.
I add 10 seconds to each cooking time. The mixture will
appear pale when it's done but it's OK. Do cook it long enough.
The cooking bowl gets very hot. Be careful.
Pile up newspaper or something "heat proof" where you
set the cookie sheet. This is HOT.
Bowl will appear to be so covered with hard brittle that you
can never get it cleaned....fill with water and let soak
for a bit. It will all dissolve.
I've tried making this with all sorts of other nuts - pecans.
filberts, Brazil nuts (chopped), almonds, etc. I didn't
think it was great.
...................................................................
This is a recipe I've been using since 1982!!  I just found a recipe on All Recipes and it doesn't call for raw peanuts ... just regular salted peanuts.  LOL LOL ...... and I work so hard and spend so much trying to find raw peanuts.  I wonder if I'll ever be brave enough to try cooked peanuts.

Thanks for the recipe, Nancy. I love cooking in the microwave. My fudge is a microwave recipe too. Also, check your email!

My fudge is microwave too ...... but my divinity is the old-fashioned stuff - much work and much watching on top of the stove.
Verlee - I didn't receive an email from you.   So I'll send you one - lol
