PEANUT PATTIES

3 cups raw peanuts
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1 cup white corn syrup
1 stick butter
2 tbsp evaporated milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp red food coloring

In a 2-quart heavy saucepan combine the peanuts, sugar, water, and corn syrup. Cook, stirring occasionally, to the hard crack stage or 290 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat and add the butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, and food coloring; beat until creamy. Immediately drop by teaspoons onto buttered foil. Candy will quickly become stiff.
