I have a recipe for peanut brittle that requires raw peanuts. I've
looked in several grocery stores and can't find them. What would happen
if I used roasted peanuts?
Thanks,
Diana

You can get raw peanuts (in the shell) through feed and grain stores. If
I remember correctly :), when you use raw peanuts in brittle you cook them
in the syrup, roasted peanuts you would add after the syrup in cooked.

Our Co-Op (health food store and more) sells both roasted and raw Spanish
peanuts. I prefer the using the roasted peanuts because the bit of salt
cuts the sweetness of the brittle.

I don't know where you live but in my area (Portland, Oregon) you can
get raw peanuts in the health food sections of grocery stores.

Using roasted peanuts will only be noticed if you happen to have a batch
that was made with raw peanuts around for comparison.
If I use salted peanuts I omit or at least reduce the amount of salt in
the recipe.

Is your recipe a microwave recipe? If not and you would like a micro
recipe just let me know. I have one that I used just yesterday and it
turned out great (I used raw peanuts this time).

Good Luck!

Tricia,

I would love to have your microwave recipe. Please e-mail me or
I'll try to catch your post (hard to do every day during the holidays).

Thanks,
Linda
