2 T minced onion
2 T minced green peppers

Kathryn's Peanut Brittle

Kathryn K is a fine cook. Her Italian Cream Cake is unbearably good. Her husband didn't want cake for his birthday, asking instead for peanut brittle. Oh, yum!

1 c sugar
1 c raw peanuts
1/2 c corn syrup
1/8 t salt

Mix together and microwave 4 minutes, then stir.
Cook another 3 minutes.

1 T butter

Stir in butter and cook another 2 minutes.

1 t vanilla
1 t baking soda

Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Quickly spread on buttered foil.

Kathryn's hint: I use my glass batter bowl to make this. You need something with a handle because the bowl gets really hot.
