Christmas Nuts, Brined and Smoked
« on: December 19, 2014, 08:08:04 PM »
Four racks of nuts for Christmas.   Peanuts, pecans, brazils.  Bulk food store buy, raw and no salt.  Package on the peanuts actually said, don’t eat without cooking.

I did a batch UNBRINED (lower rack) and the peanuts were much better that way.   Other two varieties were better with the brine.

Cherry wood, 225 for 4 hours.   Let cool.

EVOO and your favorite rib or chicken rub.

We used Oakridge brine and Chicken season for these nuts.    Nice sugar content which didn’t burn.  Almost a caramel taste?

Recommended, family and 3 year old approved!

Merry Christmas everyone.


PS, brined the nuts for about 4 each in separate zip locks.

This is such a great idea!

Tried it today, using mixed raw nuts. Everyone is going crazy over them ... they might not last til Christmas!
