I like me peanuts, unfortunately the salt is not good for blood pressure.

I've tried all the normal brands of salted peanuts but always go back to Tesco's value brand 30p as their cheap biggrin and a fairly small nut, I do not like jumbo peanuts.

On my travels to various stores I never see bags of roasted unsalted peanuts, don't want to go through the palaver of monkey nuts; but have thought of washing the salt off the salted nuts, but figure they'll turn soft and mulchy.

Recommendations please smile

How about buying the unroasted variety from health food shops and having a go at roasting your own?

You could still add some salt (try a splash of tamari or soy sauce).

I've got a recipe for 'spicy mixed nuts' which says 45 minutes at 150C. I'd check peanuts after 30.

Have a go at this:

5 cups nuts
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp cayenne
3 tbs oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp each of finely chopped oregano, sage, thyme, rosemary, savory and marjoram (or you can leave the herbs out)

Mix everything together, tip it into a roasting pan and bake. Keep stirring the mixture when you take it out, else it will set into a hard clump.

Washing them is actually quite effective. But monkey nuts are better, as opening them slows you down.
