Raw Jumbo Virginia Peanuts | Want to make your own fresh peanut butter at home? Try this great recipe. Shell the peanuts; roast just enough so that the hulls will slip off easily; remove all the hulls by gently rolling, fanning, and screening; grind very fine in any sort of mill, passing through several times if necessary; pack in cans, bottles, or jars, and seal if not for immediate use. Some manufacturers add a little salt and a small amount of olive oil; others do not, according to taste. For small quantities of butter a good meat grinder will answer the purpose. If the nuts are ground fine enough no additional oil will be necessary.The flavor of our raw jumbo Virginia peanuts is perfect for your soups, bisques, consommés and purees! Popular in Thai dishes and many other authentic Asian cuisine.
