Myrtle's Peanut Brittle
2 cups sugar
1 cup white syrup
1/2 cup boiling water
2 c peanuts. I use Dry Roasted Peanuts
2 Tbs butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs soda (Baking Soda)
Mix sugar, syrup and water. Place on low heat and stir until dissolved, then stir briskly. Cook until hard ball stage or 265 on thermometer.
Then add peanuts and butter. Cook until golden brown.
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla & soda and stir just until well blended. Pour on 2 buttered cookie sheets and spread. You have to work fast after you add soda. (Cool and break apart into chunks when it's cold.)
