A Honey of a Snack

Janet Groene's
Honeycomb Peanut Brittle

In your RV travels do you enjoy stopping at farm markets and roadside stands to try local harvests ? Try this recipe with all the different local honeys found along the way. It’s a fun project for a rainy day. I don’t recommend doubling the recipe.

1 cup each sugar and honey
4 cups unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda

Generously butter a large  pan or baking sheet. In a three-quart pot bring honey, sugar, peanuts and vinegar to a boil. Stir until sugar dissolves, then keep boiling until mixture reaches 300 degrees. Turn off heat and cautiously stir in the baking soda. (Mixture will foam up). Spread on the pan and let it cool completely until it’s brittle and can be broken into pieces. Makes ½ pound of candy.
