Col. Kirkbride Memories - Peanut Brittle...
"As a kid, I used to go over to Bob Kirkbride's house, along with other kids, and watch him make candy. He would do the old fashioned taffy pull, and of course, peanut brittle, which he would pour onto a slab of marble to cool. It is by far the best peanut brittle recipe out there, and I've tried almost all of them. Of course, I've tweaked it over the years, by adding a little more butter, salt, and soda, but it still is essentially the same. Each year, for the last thirty years or so, I have made around 80 batches of candy (peanut brittle and toffee), and got quite a reputation. Fortunately, it was something I loved to do. Each year, just before Thanksgiving, I would line the kitchen with foil (guard against splatter), and end just before Christmas. Also, I haven't told you this, but I thoroughly enjoy the Paris Times (OkieLegacy)... it really brings back memories, and you do an outstanding job... what dedication!!!! I've attached the candy recipe's, and Grandmother (Mary Barbara Hurt Paris') - Apple Pie Recipe, which Dad was still making up to a year or so before he died." -- Stan Paris - Toffee & Peanut Brittle Recipe
