Jimmy Carter's Peanut Brittle

Ingredients



Instructions

  1. In a 3-quart saucepan, stir together sugar, water and corn syrup. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking until mixture reaches 232 degrees F on a candy thermometer, or until it spins a two-inch thread when the spoon is raised.
  2. Stir in peanuts. Continue boiling, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches 300 degrees F or until a small amount of mixture separates into threads which are hard and brittle when dropped into very cold water.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in baking soda, butter and vanilla extract.
  4. Quickly pour into two greased jellyroll pans.
  5. As mixture begins to harden, pull until thin.
