Roasting shelled Brazil nuts is a simple process that can bring out their nutty flavor and make them crispier. 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 shelled Brazil nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- If desired, sprinkle some salt over the Brazil nuts.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the Brazil nuts for about 10-15 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Check them regularly to prevent burning.
- Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the Brazil nuts cool down to room temperature.
Roasted shelled Brazil nuts can be used in a variety of dishes, such as salads, 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.
