Peanut Brittle Recipe...August 10, 2004

Hi Y'all,

Calling all Chefs! It doesn't matter if you are a chef in a restaurant, or a chef at home!

I'm sure all of us have some sort of story to tell that was
embarrassing, or funny in some way. We are asking you to please share it with everyone! You don't have to have your name posted if you don't want to, or can have it posted if you do!

I have had a lot of our readers wanting to hear about it! Help us put a little humor in someone's life!

Have a joke or two? Please share it! It does not have to be cooking related as long as it is family friendly!

You can either post it at the message board, or send it to us, and we will do it for you!

Peanut Brittle


1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 pound shelled peanuts (not roasted)


Start by greasing 2 cookie sheets (best to use ones with 1/4 to 1/2 inch sides to prevent overflow). Mix the baking soda with 1 teaspoon of water and the vanilla, set aside.

Now mix the sugar with 1 cup water and the corn syrup in a sauce pan.
Cook over a medium heat to 240 degrees (if you have a candy
thermometer) to test for doneness drip a drop of the mixture into a cold glass of water if the drop forms a round bead and then flattens slightly when it is removed from the water, then you know you are ready for the next step.

Stir butter and peanuts into the mixture. Continue on medium head - be sure to stir constantly to avoid sticking. When the drip into water test turns the drop into threads that are hard and brittle, remove the saucepan from the burner and mix in the baking soda mixture.

Now dump the candy mixture half on each cookie sheet and quickly spread to about 1/4 inch thick with a spatula. When mixture cools, you can break it into pieces.

This is a great gift item that can be put into a tin. It is best to
first wrap candy in wax paper. It can also be wrapped in tissue paper. ..first place pieces in a plastic bag, then set bag in middle of a 12 inch square piece of paper. Gather up sides and then tie together with a ribbon.

This recipe makes about 2 pounds of candy, enough for several gifts.

Questions And Answers From Readers:

"Apricot 3-layer jello salad or dessert?

Had this recipe at a funeral luncheon in southern Indiana in the '70s.
It was very good and not to sweet for either. There was a milky layer, then a clearer layer and the last had something akin to cottage-mixed- in layer. There was nothing dolloped on the top. Would like the recipe if anyone knows it. This was a heavy German/Missouri Synod Lutheran town. Help Help Help"

Still no answer for this recipe! If you have it, please post it at the message board!
