If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Peanut Brittle (untested)

This recipe appears to be Grammy's handwriting (her handwriting looked different when she wrote in fountain pen). It is undated, but I suspect this recipe pre-dates 1941 (the year she got married).

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon butter [this doesn't seem like enough butter]
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts
  1. Put sugar into an iron sauce pan and let it melt over a moderately hot fire
  2. Add butter and nuts and pour immediately into a well-greased pan
  3. Mark into squares when cool enough

Pin It!
