Nanny's Yummy Peanut Brittle

This is a recipe from my Grandmother Nanny, who passed away last September. She was almost 97. This her with Skippy a few years ago (maybe more than a few!). She was always cooking and everything always tasted so good!! No one ever went hungry at Nanny's!

I loved her peanut brittle and thought today I would share it with you! (This recipe is written in SE Georgia speak..I have tried to translate when possible!) Nanny would be so glad you tried it!!

Nanny's Peanut Brittle
1/2 cup white Karo syrup
1 cup sugar
3 cups peanuts (raw)
1 level tsp soda
Cook syrup, sugar and peanuts until they are cracked (parched) stirring constantly. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add soda. Stir until soda has foamed for a while. Let cool in flat buttered pan. Break into pieces. Enjoy!
