A tasty little treat from Lady & Sons cookbook. Note: On the Food Network site, this recipe is called "Dianne's Sugared Peanuts" and does not include the salt. The baking directions are also a bit different: "Bake until the peanuts are golden, about 12 to 15 minutes, stirring at 5 minute intervals."
