1 1/2 C. sugar
1 1/2 C. corn syrup
1/2 C. hot water
Add sugar, corn syrup and water to a large saucepan. Cook until it threads,
1 1/2 C. raw peanuts
Cook just to under 300°F. Add 1 1/2 t. baking soda. Mixture will foam and turn
color. Stir about 1 minute.
Have ready a piece of buttered foil on a cookie
sheet. (or a marble slab-buttered) Pour out quickly being very careful not to
touch the candy mixture.
It is very hot. I like it thin so I use 2 buttered
forks and pull the peanut brittle from the edges to thin it some.
