Palmie’s Peanut Brittle
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup water
2 TBSP butter
2 cups raw Spanish peanuts (I bet you could use salted if you like your brittle a little salty)
1 TBSP soda
Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy saucepan and boil until reaches soft ball stage (yes, you need a candy thermometer)
Add butter and peanuts, boiling until the mixture is amber coloured
Add baking soda
Remove from heat and pour onto a buttered pan or platter
As soon as cool enough to handle pull out thin.
Break into pieces when cooled.
Palmie was my Grandma’s best friend
Seriously? How did they think they were going to get away with using God in a public museum funded by tax payers who aren’t one of the Abrahamic messes?
