National Peanut Brittle Day - 2022-01-26
What is National Peanut Brittle Day?
Brittle is a candy made of sugar and peanuts. It is made by melting the sugar, adding nuts to it, and then pouring it onto a flat surface such as granite or marble. The candy cools into a hard, brittle treat that is broken into smaller pieces. Some of the best brittles are hand-stretched into a thin, easily cracked candy that melts in your mouth. Some believe that peanut brittle originated in the American South because of the popularity of peanuts at the time. Because peanut farming was so popular, coupled with the fact that Civil War soldiers survived on peanuts due to their protein content, it's likely that someone made peanut brittle during this time. Another version credits a Southern woman for accidentally inventing the candy.
