Easy Old Timey Peanut Brittle
I suggest you put everything in the skillet and don't turn it on until you have measured out the baking soda (set aside) & buttered the cookie sheet. Things will go alot smoother if you are prepared!!
Hope you enjoy!

- 1/2 c
- white corn syrup
- 1 c
- 2 c
- raw peanuts (shelled or not it's up to you)
- 1/4 c
- 1 1/2 tsp
- baking soda
1Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the baking soda in a heavy skillet & cook until the peanuts start to pop & mixture begins to brown. Stir often so all the peanuts cook evenly. On my stove it will cook about 20 minutes on 6 1/2 from the time I turn it on.
2The peanuts pop open about the time the syrup turns a carmel color. Then take off the heat & add the baking soda. Stir quickly & mix well. Pour & spread out evenly on a greased cookie sheet.
3When cool break up into pieces as desired. Eat & enjoy!!
