The recipe pamphlet and tupperware came home with me from a recent neighborhood garage sale. I admit that I have a thing for vintage tupperware...the old scoops are the best.
I was saving the picture for an "easy bake" recipe and have one to share today. My mom calls these "sugar peanuts" and they are one of those salty-sweet things that always get me in trouble. I just made a batch this morning and I've already had a hard time limiting myself to a reasonable serving size...I suggest you make these for a crowd like at a picnic or something.
16 oz. bag of raw peanuts
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
Add the sugar and water to a 10 to 12 inch skillet and dissolve the sugar over medium heat. Add the peanuts and cook, stirring occasionally, until the water is about gone and you have a nice sugary coating. Spread the peanuts on a baking pan in a single layer and sprinkle liberally with coarse salt. Bake at 275 for about an hour and let cool.
