Theres a variety of flavors but regular salted sells the most. During the holiday season you see bags of shelled raw pnuts on the shelves for brittle and so forth, they are usually cheap. I boil these in heavy saltwater sometimes to get through til early summer. Several hours boiling and they are still fairly solid (like the dry matures) and they taste about the same (no shells to play with though). Try some out.
Thanks! We're moving down to the Lexington area in January-loved SC THAT much!

2 C. sugar
1/2 C. corn syrup
1-1/2 C. heavy cream
4 Tbsp. butter
1-1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

cook first four ingredients to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. (or firm-ball stage).

stir in vanilla and pour onto a greased metal pan or marble slab to cool.

I was going to COMPLETELY replace the vanilla with rum extract, but my girlfriend advised against it! no more than 1/2 tsp.!

Never firmed up Good as a caramel SAUCE, like for ice cream or pie, but that's about it!

Earlier today, forbidden potato chips. A brand I'd never heard of, bag says they're in Bama. Well Bama knows how to make a good tato chip.
