RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

Peanut Brittle, American

Ingredients
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. white corn syrup
  • ½ c. water
  • ¼ t. salt
  • 1 t. butter
  • 2 c. raw Spanish peanuts
  • 2 t. baking soda
Preparation Instructions

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.
