I used an easy recipe of making peanut brittle in a microwave and used this ingredients: dry roasted peanuts, white sugar, corn syrup, butter, vanilla and baking soda. I can feel the baking soda pretty strongly and I hate it. I have to through it out.. This things happen, but I feel so bad - I have wasted so many ingredients and my time. I have even bought peanuts in a shell and cleaned it myself, because it supposedly makes this treat taste better. Oh, well. I will have to make something else to fill up this mason jars for this years stocking fillers. If you have any great suggestions, let me know!
