where to buy unshelled raw peanuts?

Postby qe2ex » Fri Sep 06, 2019 8:03 pm

I've been looking so far without luck for unshelled raw peanuts (for making peanut butter).

Anyone have some tips on where I can find them? Not too far from Benalmadena preferably.

Thanks.

Why not just buy some peanut butter? Is the homemade stuff any better? There was a TV program about it last week and the commercial product was literally raw peanuts in a blender - nothing else added.

Back in Norway I bought brands that are 99.3 or 99.4% peanut (the remainder being salt) in regular grocery shops, but here I've not seen anything like that so far, only stuff that has sugar and/or other things added to it. Given up looking now to tell the truth. Like you saw, making peanut butter is a pretty easy thing to do and does not take long, and it also makes it possible to experiment a little with the taste sometimes (e.g., add a bit of cashew or hazelnuts) for some variation.

I'm guessing there are "health shops" here where I could find better peanut butter, but have not had time to look for those yet.

Hi, I don't know if you have scourced you unshelled peanuts yet but they have them in Aldi, In my local Aldi in Torrox anyway !

As a professional cook I would suggest you just use plain, unsalted SHELLED penuts, you'll find it much faster and easier !

Supersol stock them. Saw them together with the other nuts (fruits secos) Packed in bags on the periphary of the fresh fruit and veg.
