TRS Red Peanuts are sustainable versatile legumes. It requires much less water and it takes 5 gallons an ounce as compared to 80 gallons per ounce of almonds. Its skin is high in fibre and it also contains resveratrol which is the same antioxidant present in red wide. Aside from these, there are pieces of evidence that suggest red peanuts help prevent heart diseases as there is a kind of peanut that provides minerals and vitamins that specifically aid in one’s heart health.

Ways of eating red peanuts:
Roasting. Roasting is one of the many ways of consuming peanuts deliciously and healthily. It is a tasty snack that one can devour in. A little amount of salt to taste goes a long way, too! Here’s a sample and simple recipe for roasting raw peanuts:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Place your peanuts one layer deep in a shallow baking pan.
- Roast for about 15-20 minutes, removing from the oven just before they’re done, as peanuts continue to cook as they cool.
- Season to taste as desired and enjoy.
Healthy Peanut Butter. Place the freshly roasted peanuts in a food processor and add a little sweetness, preferably raw honey as it tastes great. Additionally, add salt to add more flavour. Grind them up until they’re smooth or chunky, depending on what consistency you want. This then turns into peanut butter! It does not taste like those you buy in the grocery stores because it does not have sugars or preservatives but it tastes just as good, if not better.
