I have a question to ask you all. Our town is having a Peanut Festival in Oct. They have it every yr rain or shine. Last yr we had a booth and did fairly well, but asking around town and found out the customers would like more peanut items. We have some peanut butter bread and cookies but we would like to have some more. If you all could help with recipes I would greatly appreciate it.
Pop's p.e.r.f.e.c.t. Peanut Butter Fudge
2 c sugar
2 T Karo syrup
1 c water (I used 2/3 cup milk)
1/4 c butter or margarine
1 t vanilla
1/4 t cream of tartar
1 1/4 c peanut butter (I used an overflowing 1/3 cup)
buttered 8"X8" cake pan
Combine sugar, water, corn syrup and just a little salt in a heavy 2-qt saucepan and cook on medium heat. Once your mixture comes to a good boil lower your heat and keep it cooking nicely until candy thermometer reads soft ball stage. Takes 10 minutes or so maybe 15.
Remove from heat--add butter and beat until melted. Add cream of tartar mix well. Add peanut butter and vanilla and beat well until it starts to hold it's shape--when it no longer just melts back into itself. Takes several minutes.
Pour into buttered pan and sprinkle immediately with kosher salt. and if you have it vanilla powder
best to you!
on the peanut butter quantity -- i mean i used the one full cup and a huge heaping 1/4 cup full so it was actually over a cup and a third --
i always use more banana in b bread, apples in a pie/cake always up the ante on those crucial ingredients -- never hurts
AThank you Ill give it a try
