This was one of the first thing I learned to make as a young bride back in 1985. MIL did a lot of baking and candy making for my ex husband when he was growing up and she got this recipe from her long time neighbor faye Duman in Eugene Ore. It is still to this day the best peanut brittle I have ever tasted and not very hard to make. Back then I could burn water and they were still able to teach me this wonderful candy.
