Best in the World Peanut Brittle

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 483


1 cup white corn syrup
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup water
2 cups raw peanuts
2 teaspoons margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


Place syrup, sugar, and water in iron skillet and cook to soft-ball stage (230°). Add raw peanuts. Stir and cook these ingredients on medium-high to the crack stage (301°–302°), stirring constantly. Turn off heat. Stir in margarine, vanilla, baking soda, and salt until well blended. This will want to foam over. Keep stirring fast until well blended. Pour into large platter that is well buttered. As soon as possible, start pulling over the edges of platter. Work on Formica or tile counter. You can’t pull this out thin until it reaches the right temperature. (If it’s too hot, it will not be clear, so just keep working with it.) You can make it as thin as you like, and break it into pieces.
