An Eastern North Carolina classic, Rusty's Peanut Brittle is unlike anything you've ever tasted. Far from the sticky, tacky peanut brittle you may be accustomed to seeing or eating, this brittle is light and crispy, and virtually melts in your mouth. Produced in historic downtown Tarboro, this sweet and savory treat is made with North Carolina peanuts from a 100-year-old family recipe.
WHY RUSTY'S EXISTS
My mother was the ultimate hostess. One of my fondest childhood memories is walking into my mother's kitchen to the smell of peanut brittle cooking - fresh peanuts, sugar boiling, and that hint of vanilla. That smell meant that the holiday season was nearing. Nancy shared her peanut brittle with what seemed like half of the United States.
We started making Gran's recipe one Christmas when we were out of original gift ideas. Our friends and family went crazy over the fact we'd "perfected" Gran's gift. We've never looked back.
We hope you will love it as much as Gran loved making it.
