Grandma Maxey’s Peanut Brittle

This is the ONLY thing I make for the holidays. But I make over 100 pounds for family and friends.

Heat on med heat:

  • 1/3 C water
  • Add 2 C. sugar
  • 1 C. Karo White syrup

Heat to 240 degrees, stirring every once in a while.

  • Add 2 C. raw peanuts and 1 tsp salt

Stir and heat to 295 degrees.

  • Take off heat and add 1 Tablespoon butter
  • And 2 tsp baking soda

Pour onto buttered cookie sheet

Cool and bag.

DO NOT make on a humid day.

I use a heavy bottomed pan – I have 4 pressure cooker pans that you would use for meals – not canning

Also use FRESH soda and raw peanuts.
