Aunt Sue’s (my sister) peanut brittle recipeis simply one of the best and has long been a family favorite.
Another delicious recipe from our Family-FavoriteRecipes Collection.
Recipe: Aunt Sue’s PeanutBrittle
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup raw peanuts
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons baking soda1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Makes 48 servings. (The yield is simplya ‘guesstimate’, breaking the candy into pieces is not an accurateway to measure.)
Cook’s Note: Not bothering with a candythermometer, Aunt Sue would simply say to cook the sugar/syrupmixture until it turns the perfect golden color, add the peanutsand cook a couple more minutes…maybe this was her secret?!!
