Is there a easy way to get skins off peanuts?

Ok... I found a good way ! I did not have any gloves so I used a rubber gripper thing that you use to open jars with, and it worked like a charm ! Thanks for the laughs and suggestions!

Thanks everyone ! The children are 11 - 12 . Taste of Home magazine had a recipe for Papas Rellenas but it has raisins & Olives in it . I think I could either omit or chop them very fine. I like your thinking jedd63, parents would be VERY happy ! ;)

My first trip to Chicago , Where should we eat?

Thanks so much ! Not a big fan of deep dish , but " do in Rome" will look at the others online. My friend is a huge dessert fan, me salty & crunchy...

My first trip to Chicago , Where should we eat?

I looked at all the menus and I like a great deal of them ! I live on the coast of Mississippi & 1 hour from New Orleans , we go over about three times a month to eat. I noticed octopus on every other menu. I guess Chicago & octopus are like New Orleans & crawfish! I thought Kuma's rules on their Menu was a little rude....I thought REALLY?? What is the hambuger joint that was a SNL skit... Cheeseburger Cheeseburger ..Tourist trap?

My first trip to Chicago , Where should we eat?

I really do not have a budget, A friend recommended Giordano's pizza and Carmines for Italian and Hot Doug's for Hot dogs. Thanks for your help ! I am going to look up a few Menu's online.Especially XOCO

Is there a easy way to get skins off peanuts?

I recently bought a 45 pound bag of peanuts and I am a pro at boiling them , but I am new at roasting ( which is very easy ) but
the skins are so hard to get off ! I tried a method in which you put the them in a jar and shake, it did not work . I would love any suggestions. Thanks !
