Shop bought nuts are so overpriced I decided to attempt to make my own. They actually taste really good and have got me thinking of other recipes I could try in the coming weeks.
1kg plain peanuts
Juice of 6 limes
6 tablespoons of chilli powder
1 tablespoon of smoked paprika
large pinch of salt
1 heaped teaspoon of sugar
Pre-heat the oven at 120 degrees Celcius
Mix the lime juice with the chilli powder, paprika, salt and sugar. Add the nuts and mix well ensuring they are all well coated.
Place onto a baking tray (or 2) in a single layer if possible. Put them in the oven for around 45 minutes, turning every 10 minutes or so until nice and dry.
Leave to cool before storing in an airtight container
