A gourmet is a person who is knowledgeable in fine food and drink.
Red Peanut Patties
These are just like the old-fashioned ones wrapped in cellophane that you can still buy in some stores today.
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup white corn syrup
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups raw peanuts
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
Red paste food coloring
Cook sugar, white corn syrup, milk and raw peanuts slowly until they reach the soft ball stage on a candy thermometer. This may take 1 hour.
Remove from heat and add butter, confectioners' sugar and enough red paste food coloring to make a bright red. Stir until the mixture begins to thicken "real good." Drop by big spoonsful onto wax paper.
When cool, wrap each in plastic wrap.
