Honey Roasted Peanuts
Simply place your raw, shelled nuts in a single layer on a cookie sheet. I put a piece of parchment paper under them just to make clean up a little easier. Place the nuts in the oven on a setting of 300 degrees or less and let them cook. You may want to stir them from time to time and you definitely will want to pay close attention to the process. The nuts will quickly change from "roasted" to "burned" if you are not careful.
Once you have removed the roasted nuts from the oven you can sprinkle them with a bit of sea salt or leave them unsalted, whatever your preference. Then, drizzle honey lightly over the nuts and stir with a spoon to make sure they are all coated. Leave the nuts to cool. Once they have cooled, put them in a glass jar with a secure lid.
The nuts will stick together and be a little messy to eat, but they are absolutely delicious and are a healthy alternative to peanut brittle.
Please be careful with the peanuts when they are taken out of the oven as they are very hot and will easily burn the unsuspecting individual.
