How to Make Grandma Shipley's Peanut Brittle
- In heavy pan on med heat, combine sugar, syrup and water. Stir constantly to dissolve. When boiling, don't stir. It will need to get to 280 degrees on a candy thermometer. Stir peanuts in gradually while boiling. Stir often and watch closely, peanuts will burn, so use a good wooden spoon. When it gets to 300 degrees on the thermometer, remove from heat. Have baking soda ready, add gently but quickly. On a greased cookie sheet, pour out all at once. When cold, break into chunks.
- Note: Grandma's peanut brittle is incredibly thick, so use two cookies sheets so that it thins out more. Hers is the thickness of fudge.
