Peanut Brittle

1 cup Spanish peanuts, raw
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup corn syrup, light
1 tsp baking soda

In skillet on medium heat, mix sugar, water and corn syrup. Boil until mixture 'hairs' when you let it drip from the spoon. (this is the hard ball stage) add peanuts. Let cook until peanuts start looking light brown and the sugar/water mixture starts looking a little brown. Remove from heat, add baking soda and stir. Mixture will foam up, stir several times then either spoon onto foil for individual pieces or just pour out into one big piece. The longer you stir the mixture the browner it will get. The more brown the more better the flavor. Let cool, peel off foil and store in air tight container. Makes about 20-25 tablespoon size pieces.
