Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Makes: 4 OZ

Description: Here's the recipe my Mom has made for fifty years or so!

1 cup  white sugar
1/2 cup  light corn syrup
1/4 tsp  salt
1/4 cup  water
1 cup  peanuts
2 tbsp  butter, softened
1 tsp  baking soda

Instructions: Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 degrees F, or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads.
Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter or margarine and baking soda pour at once onto cookie sheet. With 2 forks, lift and pull peanut mixture into rectangle about 14x12 inches; cool. Snap candy into pieces.
