Family Makes Peanut Brittle on a Sunday

    ***WARNING***This video is made for educational purposes only, if you attempt to make this at home you do so at your own risk and we can not be held responsible for any injuries. Making peanut brittle is a dangerous process since such high temperature are used to make it. With that said, for those that are curious and want specifics this is how we make it.
    We add 10 pounds of corn syrup in a copper kettle along with 14 pounds of sugar and 2 quarts of water. Bring it to a rapid boil before adding raw peanuts; already cooked peanuts would give it a burnt taste since they would then be cooked for a second time. Once the candy reaches 285°F we remove it from the stove and add an ounce and a half of salt and 8 ounces of baking soda. Then we pour it on the table and flatten it our and wait for it to cool down enough to cut it into thirds and flip it onto our metal counter where we'll stretch it thin. Then we box it up for sale!

    never use a metal spatula against a metal surfaces like pans etc. the micro scrapings of metallic materials can end up being mixed with food. they can create problems in the digestive system if ingested.
