Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle

3 c. sugar
1 c. white corn syrup
1/2 c. water
1/2 tsp. salt
3-4 c. raw peanuts
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. butter
2 tsp. backing soda

Mix sugar, syrup, water, and salt together. Cook over low heat until sugar dissolves. Add peanuts and stir constantly until mixture reaches hard crack. Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Mix then add baking soda. Mix thoroughly. Pour into 8 buttered 9 inch pie pans. Spread as thin as possible. Let cool until tacky, then cut in half and turn over to finish cooling. Break
and eat, or store between waxed paper and store. It freezes well.

Our dear neighbor just taught us how to make this. It might not turn
out the first time you make it. It takes practice, but once you get it
down it is soooooo good! :D It makes a great Christmas time treat, or
