RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
Peanut Brittle, American
Using a large kettle, boil first four ingredients together until mixture reaches thread stage (238˚ of candy thermometer). Then add butter and peanuts. Stir, cook until golden brown (300˚ on a candy thermometer). Remove from heat and add baking soda. This will bubble up. Mix well and pour onto a well greased enamel tabletop to cool. As it cools, pull as thin as possible. When cool, break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
