Peanut Brittle

Ingredients
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • 2 3/4 cups raw Spanish peanuts
  • 1 ounce butter (1" x 1" cube)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions

This recipe takes quite a lot of counter space. Start by taking four cookie sheets and buttering them. Around each cookie sheet, spread aluminum foil (need about 4 square feet around each cookie sheet). In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, add the sugar, water, and corn syrup. Make sure not to get any on the sides of the pan. Heat on low until everything becomes liquid, then turn heat up to medium. Insert candy thermometer, and boil mixture until it reaches 240 degrees F. Slowly, add the peanuts. The mixture should NOT stop boiling. Continue heating until the mixture reaches 310 degrees F. Remove the pan from the stove. Toss in the cube of butter. Mix the soda, salt and vanilla, and pour them into the mixture. Mix it all up using a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture onto the 4 buttered cookie sheets. Get you fingers REAL buttery. As the peanut brittle cools along the edges, pull it out into thin strings. It usually takes two people to keep up with it. As soon as everything has cooled down, store the Peanut brittle in a sealed container. It is very hydrophillic and will stick together if you let it sit out.
