Peanuts are available in the supermarkets and grocery stores all year round in airtight packets. It is available in different forms like shelled, unshelled, roasted, salted etc. Buying unshelled peanuts is any day better than the processed ones as processed nuts are treated with a number of chemicals to loosen their skins, making them unfit for consumption. :woohoo: :side:

When buying raw, unshelled peanuts, ensure that the pod of peanut is compact and cream in colour. Make sure there is no evidence of moisture or insect damage and they don’t rattle when you shake them. Avoid buying shriveled shelled nuts as this indicates the peanut’s age. Peanut’s shell should be brittle and should come off easily. Unshelled groundnuts can be placed in a cool and dark place for many months whereas shelled ones can be stored inside an airtight container for years. Since peanuts have high oil content, it can lead to quick breakdown when left at room temperature for a long time. You can store peanuts at room temperature but they are best stored in refrigerator to maintain its freshness and prolong its shelf life. The low water content in peanut will prevent it from freezing. :) B)

Peanuts should not be chopped before storing. Peanuts turn chewy and soggy and eventually turn rancid with time if not stored properly. Ensure that they don’t have a distinctively “off” odour before using them as the odour indicates that they have become rancid. You can store peanuts in glass or plastic container and zip lock bags. Peanuts tend to absorb odour easily so keep them away from other pungent or smelly food. Roasting peanuts decrease their shelf life by bringing out their oil. So consume roasted peanuts as soon as possible. Peanuts are versatile nuts and with little imagination you can incorporate this healthy legume easily in your daily diet. ;) :side:

Because of their high protein content peanuts are processed into a variety of forms including butter, oil, flour and flakes. Peanut oil is used extensively for cooking and for preparing margarine. It is extracted from shelled and crushed peanuts by applying hydraulic pressure. Peanut flour is made from peanuts which are blanched and then electronically sorted to select the highest quality peanuts. The nuts are then roasted and are processed to obtain low fat flour. This flour is used in confectionary products, frostings, cereal bars and bakery mixes. It is also used for baking cooking and pies. :side: :S

You can make peanut butter easily at home. Roast and blanch peanuts and grind it to get a creamy consistency. Add sweeteners or salt to enhance the flavour. You can also add chopped peanut to give it a creamy plus crunchy texture. Roasted peanut is a very popular Indian snack and is very easy to prepare. The round, Spanish peanut has a rich taste and is usually used for roasting. Place shelled peanuts in a shallow baking pan and roast in 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and put it aside to let it cool. Season it with salt and pepper and it is ready to eat. :cheer: B) B)
