Dry roasted and salted peanuts-what's the difference?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am picking up the last few ingredients for all my Christmas baking and I have two recipes and each one calls for different peanuts; dry roasted and salted? What is the difference and can I just use one kind for both recipes??? We are not normally peanut eaters, so I do not want much leftover peanuts afterwards. I have both recipes posted here; Crunchy peanut clusters and Salted peanut chews. Take a look and let me know what you think.

I think you would be safe using salted vs dry roasted. IMO...there is a big taste difference.

I agree there's a difference, when I think of just salted peanuts I think of the cocktail peanuts, which would probably be okay in both recipes. Dry roasted are just that, dry roasted, just basically baked w/ no oil, and they are seasoned, not just salted I think. They definitely have a different flavor. Though you can also get them unsalted, which is my fave!

So I'd say as long as the recipe that calls for dry roasted didn't specify unsalted, you'd be fine to use just salted cocktail peanuts for both. HTH!
