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.

Try Fuengirola market on a tuesday. You can buy everything there.

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.

Always interested in learning from a professional, but I don't imagine you mean you put the peanuts with their shell on in the blender, so not sure what you mean here. Please explain.

FWIW, not found any raw unshelled peanuts in the grocery shops I've been to here in Benalmadena so far. Not in aldi, lidl, carrefour, some supersols', and some random smaller shops, even though I usually try to remember looking for it when shopping. Salted or shelled, yes, but not raw unshelled.

Birds go for raw peanuts, so have you tried a pet shop ? Do they have any in Spain ?
