Directions:
Before starting, measure all ingredients and have a marble slab or buttered table ready. In a 4-quart kettle add sugar, corn syrup and water. Mix well then put it on the stove. Keep sugar grains off the sides of the kettle. When at softball stage (240), add peanuts. Stir constantly to keep peanuts from burning. At 320-340, it will suddenly turn brown. Remove from heat. Add butter, salt, soda and vanilla. Stir until butter is melted. Pour a thin layer on buttered surface. Run a spatula under it to let air under. Just as soon as possible, flip it over. Stretch out and break. Work fast.
