Peanut Brittle


1 c. sugar
1/2 c. light Karo Syrup
1/2 c. water
2 c. peanuts
1 tsp. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. soda


In a large (#7) cast iron skillet on medium heat, cook sugar, syrup and water until a small amonut will form a soft ball when placed in cool water. Add peanuts, stirring constantly, until peanuts reach a hard crack stage. Remove from heat and quickly add butter, vanilla and soda. Soda will cause foam. Stir until it is well mixed. Pour on a buttered aluminum foil sheet. Thin to a single peanut thickness; cool.
