    Mom's famous peanut brittle

    "This is a wonderful peanut brittle that is easy to make and wows everyone! Have all the ingredients for this recipe measured out and ready. This recipe requires that you react quickly. You do not have time to measure ingredients in between steps."
    INGREDIENTS:
    1-1/3 cups and 1 tablespoon
    white sugar
    2/3 cup and 1 teaspoon light
    corn syrup
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup water 1-1/3 cups and 1 tablespoon
    peanuts
    2 tablespoons and 2-1/4
    teaspoons butter, softened
    1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
    2. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads.
    3. Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter or margarine and baking soda; pour at once onto cookie sheet. With 2 forks, lift and pull peanut mixture into rectangle about 14x12 inches; cool. Snap candy into pieces.
    Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Merry Christmas from my home to yours.
