This was Ruth Adams’ (my grandmother) recipe.
2 C sugar
½ C water
1 C Light syrup
1 pkg (10oz) raw peanuts
1/8 tsp salt
1 heaping tsp of Soda
1 tsp vanilla
Stir together sugar, water and light syrup. Boil to a hard
boil stage over medium heat. Remove from heat and
add 1 pkg. raw peanuts, and 1/8 tsp salt. Return to heat
and cook to hard crack stage. Remove from heat and
add 1 heaping tsp of Soda and 1 tsp vanilla. Stir well.
Pour at once onto a well buttered cookie sheet. Cool
and break into pieces.
