Oil Roasted (French-fried) Peanuts


2 cups raw shelled red skin or blanched peanuts
1 1/2 cups peanut oil, or enough to cover peanuts


In an electric skillet, deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat oil to 350 degrees. Add peanuts and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until just under doneness desired (peanuts continue to cook as they cool). Drain on paper. Season to taste. Seasoning peanuts: Season roasted shelled peanuts as soon as they are removed from the oven or oil.
