Peanut Brittle

•1 & 1/2 cups sugar
•1/2 cup light corn syrup
•1/4 cup water
•2 cups raw peanuts
•1 & 1/2 teaspoons soda
•1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine sugar, syrup and water; bring to a boil. Stir in peanuts gradually so as not to lose the boil. Keep at a rolling boil until peanuts pop and turn brown. Remove from heat and add soda stirring well. Add salt. Pour on a well greased cookie sheet. When cool break into pieces. About 20 – 25 pieces.

**My dad loved peanut brittle. I would always make it for him at Christmastime.
