Salting peanuts

Salted, in-the-shell peanuts are one of my favorite snacks but I'm not particularly fond of the unsalted version, and unfortunately that's what Mrs. Chicken brought home from the store.  Is it possible for me to salt them so that they taste like the real deal?  Or is the salt added as part of the roasting process?

    Are they already Roasted?
    Typically, Raw peanuts are brined in a salt solution, then dryed, then roasted.
    Boiled Peanuts are boiled in a brine solution. Never tried brining then drying roasted penuts but you could try.

    Brad - You are out of luck, unless they are unopened and you could return them for their salted cousins.

    Thanks for the help.  Yes, they've already been roasted so they may wind up as chipmunk chow...

    The only possible solution may be to shell them the use Popcorn/Nut Salt on the peanuts themselves.  Might not be the effect your looking for though.  But, if you need salt on your nuts it may do in a pinch.

    Hey pacman is on to something
     
    Brad - shell them all put into a butter bowl or bowl with a lid
    add a 1/4 tsp peanut oil to them and close the lid and shake
    then open the lid sprinkle on the popcorn salt or cajun shake close the lid and shake again
     
    the small amount of oil added is not noticable but it will make the nuts sticky (no bad jokes here) and then the salt will stick to them better.

    Why can't you do a "chex-mix" type thing (after you shell them) with a little butter, some salt and roast an hour at 250 turning every 15 mins

    That would work.

    The oven-roasting approach is interesting, and I got to thinking about peanut brittle as well.  Or maybe even using the Chex mix approach to make some actual Chex mix!

    If you don't do something soon they'll go stale on you! Me? They'd be gone by now salt or no salt.
