"Mom's Peanut Brittle" - Etta Wilkins Allen

This recipe came from Grandma's mom, Etta.  Mostly she was called Granny, but when we were kids we called her Granny Goose because she owned a goose at the time.

3 cups sugar
1 cup sorgham (molasses)
1/2 cup water

Boil till forms soft ball.

Add 3 cups peanuts (raw).

Let peanuts start popping and cook for 5 to 10 minutes.

Add 1 tsp. baking soda.  Stir until quits foaming, then pour in pan & let cool.  Break into serving-sized pieces.

Granny, Etta Wilkins Allen, May 1961.  Back of photo says "Not good of Mom but good of the house."
