Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan and boil to the soft ball stage (240). Then add the peanuts and boil to the hard crack stage (310). Take off stove and add the baking soda, salt and butter. Mixture will be very hot so be carefull. Pour onto a large greased cookie sheet and spread out with spatula. Break apart when firm.
