The Best Way To Roast Nuts
Roasted nuts have a fuller flavor compared to raw dried nuts; however, they have a shorter shelf life – so plan to use them within two to three weeks.
Spread shelled nuts in a shallow pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 5 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until nutmeats turn golden brown.
For richer flavor and more even browning, toss each cup of nutmeats with one teaspoon of vegetable oil before roasting.
You can also roast nutmeats on top of the range in a heavy skillet -heat for 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
Sprinkle hot nuts with salt or other flavorings, if desired, and spread on paper towels to cool and drain.
You can also easily roast nuts in a microwave oven: check individual manufacturer’s directions.
