Roasting you own in-Shell Peanuts, how do you make sure they're safe

jumpingmonk | Oct 5, 2009 03:33 PM

Hi all,
recently my mom came home from the farmers market with a bunch of raw peanuts (still attached to the plants). She intends to roast them in the shell and asked me if I could facilitate this. I have found instuctions on how to do this, but I had one or two questions my web seaching did not seem to answer. First and foremost is waht do i have to do to make sure the peanust are not filled with aflatoxin is just removing any ones that look discolored enough to make them safe?; will the roasting process finish the job? I laready know mom wont be able to do anything for a week or two (it's take that long for the peanuts to dry enough to be roasted) so it's not a rush thin, and I want to make absoultey sure they will be safe for cosumption when I am done.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
