Sugared Peanuts

2 cups granulated sugar
4 1/2 cups shelled raw peanuts
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup water

Coarse Salt In a large heavy pan place peanuts, salt, sugar and water. Bring
to a boil. Continue to boil until all liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
Watch carefully. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread nuts on a
greased baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake 20 minutes.
Remove from oven, stir, and bake 20 minutes longer. Cool. Store in
airtight container.

Makes about 4 1/2 cups.
Note: Raw nuts usually are found in the produce section this time of year.
