Roasting raw shelled Brazil nuts is a simple process that can enhance their flavor and make them more enjoyable as a snack or ingredient in recipes. Here is a basic method for roasting shelled Brazil nuts:
- Raw shelled Brazil nuts
- Salt (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Spread the raw shelled Brazil nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the Brazil nuts for about 10-15 minutes, stirring them every 5-7 minutes. The nuts should turn light golden brown and have a fragrant aroma when done.
- Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the Brazil nuts cool down to room temperature.
- If desired, sprinkle some salt on the roasted Brazil nuts and mix well.
Roasted shelled Brazil nuts can be used in a variety of dishes, such as baked goods, trail mix, and other recipes. They can also be enjoyed as a snack on their own or mixed with other nuts and seeds. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to several weeks.
