Unsalted and salted peanuts

can somebody tell me what the difference is when doing baking with unsalted peanuts and salted

sarahb5, Sep 27, 10:49pm
The salt is pretty much the difference

omokoroa1, Sep 27, 10:52pm
duh

rainrain1, Sep 27, 11:43pm
The taste would be the only difference

Well what did you expect!If you make something sweet with salted peanuts then you probably be able to taste the extra salt, if you were making something savoury then you might not.

Are salted ones sprayed with fat!

Also depends on whether your unsalted ones are raw, blanched and skinned or roasted - skin left on or off. Each one has a slightly different flavour. Roasting brings out the oil and they taste better than raw imo. Salted peanuts are usually always roasted so the salt will stick to them, never blanched or raw.

I made peanut brownies with salted nuts by accident, and they were foul. Not even the birds ate them!

Most roasted nuts have oil added (maybe not dry-roasted!) andwill have an antioxidant added to stop the oil going off.Countdown has large bags of Australian raw almonds at a good price, and the ingredients label on the raw ones says 100% almonds, but the roasted ones have 99% or somesuch.

So put them in a sieve and run them briefly under some hot water to wash off the oil and salt.

Simple! Plain roasted nuts for your dish.

Snap. If this had been explained in the beginning we could have gone directly to the most helpful answer.

They would still have a salty flavour through the nuts

Errrrrr no they dont! I've done it many times in my legume eating days.They just taste like a roasted nut.

rainrain1, Sep 28, 7:36pm
ohhh I dunno about that

I buy salted nuts because they are usually cheaper. Just rinse the salt off for the muesli or any sweet dish. No problem!

rainrain1, Sep 28, 8:18pm
yes lol I would do the same thing myself.but only out of desperation
