“This peanut brittle is a must at our house during the holidays. Everyone says it is the BEST Peanut brittle that they have ever tasted. My friend Joy says it is better than See's. The recipe comes from my 1953(almost 50 year old) Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.It takes time, BUT, well worth it.”
