Spanish peanuts are easy to spot because of their rich red/brown rust colored skin. Their kernels are smaller and rounder than Virginia peanuts, the most common peanut variety used for snacking nuts. Not surprisingly, Spanish peanuts are grown in Spain, having been developed there in the late 18th century. They have a satisfying crunchy texture, and a mild bitter flavor from the skin.
Buy nuts to meet specific needs, recipes, and uses. Raw Spanish Peanuts have a higher oil content than other peanuts and have a strong bold nutty flavor when roasted. They are commonly used in peanut candy like peanut brittle, or as peanuts for snacking, often served at bars and restaurants, salted or spiced. Spanish nuts can also be enjoyed in cooking and baking. Blend raw peanuts with salt, soy sauce, cumin, curry, chili powder, peppers, and coconut in many Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Indian stir-fries and curries. They compliment meats like chicken, pork, and shrimp. They can also be roasted alongside vegetables and served over rice.
Store shelled roasted peanuts in the refrigerator for best flavor and longest shelf life. They should be enjoyed within three months for best taste.
