Norma's Peanut Brittle

Norma DeRemer


I have made this for years and family and friends love it and it is so easy to make. My daughter use to live on a farm and her landlord always got peanut brittle at the farmers market. My daughter told him about mine so I made him a batch. Well, needless to say he likes mine better. It's so yummy!
