Why is it that anytime some mention of the south comes up, some fool has to start making fun? The way my mother stored peanuts was: Dry them in the sun for several days, turning twice each day, until the peanut rattles in the hull. Shake as much dirt as possible from them, then store in mesh bags, paper bags, old pillowcases, or even old hosiery. To roast, put peanuts still in the shell in a medium oven (300-350) in a shallow pan in a single layer. Roast until you can begin to smell them cook, then take one out, let it cool, and taste it. Cook until it reaches the doneness you prefer, as different people like them different ways. I have heard of people soaking the peanuts in heavily salted water overnight before roasting to get the salt taste in them, but never tried it or ate any that had been done that way. Good luck.
