Peanut in Shell

The Peanut consists of an external hull (or shell) (21-29%) surrounding the nut (79-71%). Peanut hulls, not to be confounded with peanut skins (which are the thin paper-like seed coats enclosing the kernel), are a by-product of peanut processing. The shelling of peanuts is often the second operation (after cleaning) of peanut processing, as both the production of peanut oil and the production of peanut snacks, peanut butter and other peanut-based foods require kernels without hulls (except the production of in-shell peanuts). Peanut hulls usually consist of fragmented hulls with variable amounts of whole or broken kernels.

 

Varieties of Peanuts

The 2 major varieties of Peanuts produced in India are Bold (runners) and Java (Spanish). The Bold variety peanuts have typically reddish brown skin with oblong shape, while Java variety have pink skin with spherical in shape.

Bold peanuts are the major oilseed of India. It accounts for around 25% of the total oilseed production of the country. Annual production of India Peanuts and Indian Peanuts oil are around 5-8mln and 1.5mln tons respectively.

Blanched Peanuts

Many nuts like almonds, peanuts or hazelnuts are grown in a shell. When the shell is removed there is still a skin on the outside of the nutmeat. Blanching is a process that removes the skin from the nut meat.

So how do you blanch a nut? The process itself is done by putting the nuts in very hot water for about a minute (blanching) then cooling them rapidly and rubbing off the skin.

Well, neither… it just depend what you plan on doing, cooking or snacking on the nuts. Blanched nuts are used mostly for cooking and baking. If the nut is unblanched and the skin is still on, the skin will separate during cooking. Leaving your baked goodie, a husky mess.

But, for snacking nothing beats an unblanched nut. The husk adds just a touch of flavor, and is packed full of nutrients.
