Monkey nuts are another name for peanuts that are still in their shell. Here's how you can roast them:
- Raw monkey nuts (in their shell)
- Salt (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
- Rinse the monkey nuts under cool water and dry them with a paper towel.
- Place the monkey nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Roast the monkey nuts in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the shells are lightly browned and the nuts inside are roasted and fragrant.
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the monkey nuts cool for a few minutes.
- If desired, sprinkle some salt over the monkey nuts and toss them to coat evenly.
- Serve the roasted monkey nuts warm or store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
Roasting monkey nuts can be a delicious and satisfying snack. Be sure to let them cool down before cracking open the shells, as they can be hot.
