I usually buy peanuts with the skins on them, because that's how they come.   You can get them roasted with all kinds of other oils on them that I don't want.  But when you want them raw, that's what I've found.  And then I've noticed that the skins might be irritating me.  So, I started peeling some and squeezing them and separating the halves, which would probably help when I soak them and dehydrate, and oh man.  That is tedious.  Has anybody found a way around this?  I'm craving them real bad and peanut butter just isn't the same. I've eaten it, in fact tonight.  But it still doesn't give me that crunch I like.  

Anybody have a source for raw peanuts without the skins?  And even in halves?  I'm all ears if there is a source or a way to do them that isn't so tedious.

Dry roasted - unsalted in many brands is often peanuts without oil or other additives.
(and free of skins)

Raw no skins:

Roasted organic no skins:

by "skins" do you mean their shell or the brown paper skin with in the shell?

I purchase organic peanuts that have been roasted and are still in their shell. Only salt has been added, no oils

I was really sad when TJ's started putting peanut oil into there roasted peanuts. I used to buy their roasted peanuts because they only contained peanuts and salt. Now I'm finding it almost impossible to find roasted peanuts without oil, locally. I know I can buy them online, but I like to buy locally as much as possible. Has anyone ever read the ingredient list on a jar of Plantar's Dry Roasted Peanuts ? So sad.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I have!

The unsalted variety contains peanuts. Nothing else.  Just peanuts.

When you buy Plantars, it is your choice whether you want to buy the varieties which contain: Sugar, Cornstarch, Monosodium Glutamate (Flavor Enhancer)Corn Syrup Solids, Dried Yeast, Gelatin, Paprika, Onion and Garlic Powders, Spices or the variety with just peanuts.

Well, for what it's worth, I wasn't really asking about peanut butter.  I have plenty of choices of good peanut butter without junk in it.  

But C Sharp, that first one you posted is just the ticket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Raw, no skins.  The second one would take me quite a long time to go through.  I'm about the only one who eats them in my house.  I'm not sure my wife doesn't eat them.  She's from Alabama for crying out loud.  I mean, Georgia is the Peanut state.

Maybe she wants them boiled instead of roasted.

I do purchase from nutsonline.com.  They always have great fresh items and very fast shipping. I am going to try the skinless peanuts from them next time I order.

No, she thinks they're yucky. I like them boiled.  Not as much as just crunchy though.

I am looking for that salty crunch.  I do love peanut butter, but will pass on that to eat the peanuts with salt on them.  Love them in a salad.

The last time I bought peanut butter, I bought the crunchy kind because the smooth stuff is just too smooth.  I love the crunch for some reason.  When I was a kid, it was the opposite.  I think for me I like to chew and it gets my saliva going, which is good for digestion.  But I find myself wanting crunchy foods at almost every meal.

And yeah, I love the salty too.  My BP is low, so I think it's OK to eat salt.

Have you ever tried baking with almond flour?  It makes wonderful crispy cookies and you can add whatever other nuts, dried fruit or oats to them.  There are lots of good recipes using almond flour at elanaspantry.com.  There are some recipes there that include almond butter.  You can adapt any of her recipes as far as oils or sweeteners used that are compliant for your family.  I have her almond flour cookbook.
