Peanut Brittle and Pulled Taffy Are Fun to Make


Have you always wanted to make peanut brittle? Maybe you would like to have some fun with your children and spouse with an old fashion taffy pull! The holidays will be here before you know it. So, why not get started now. Here are both candy recipes from the past for you.

Old Fashion Pulled Taffy

3 cups sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup light corn syrup
4 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. Knox unflavored gelatin
Dissolve gelatin in the water and set aside. Combine sugar, cream and corn syrup and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the gelatin mixture. Boil combined mixture to a hard boil or hard ball stage while stirring constantly. Let cool until it can be pulled.

Butter your hands for easier handling. The more it is pulled and worked, the better the texture. It will turn white. Do not twist the stretched taffy. Cut and cover with powdered sugar. Store your candy in air tight containers.

Best Ever Peanut Brittle

2 cups shelled raw peanuts
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. baking soda
Butter a jelly roll pan. Mix peanuts, sugar and syrup in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Wipe down sides of pan with damp pastry brush and cook to hard crack stage, 300 degrees, without stirring.

Remove from heat. Add baking soda quickly. Pour on baking sheet. When cooled enough to stretch, make as thin as possible. When completely cooled, break into pieces.

I hope you enjoy making both of these recipes.

I have been baking for my family and friends for over 40 years.
