Yield: 1 Servings
|1 cup||Light corn syrup|
|3 cups||Peanuts; raw, shelled, skins off if possible|
|2 teaspoons||Baking soda|
In a large, heavy saucepan heat the water, syrup, sugar and salt to boiling. Add peanuts, reduce heat to medium, and, stirring constantly, cook to hard-crack stage (293-300 F). Add butter, remove from heat and add baking soda. At this point the mixture will foam up considerably, so be careful. Stirring rapidly, pour onto a non-stick baking sheet (or a marble slab), spreading to ¼ inch thickness. When cool, break in to pieces; store in an air-tight container. Entered 14 DEC 94 NOTES : This is very similar to the peanut brittle made by Billie Bob Murphey's mother, Money Jones.
