3/4 cup water
1 1/2 cup sugar
24 oz raw peanuts
Stir together in a glass bowl. Microwave on high for 16 minutes, stirring at three minute intervals or until liquid is gone (it's important all the liquid has evaporated). Pour nuts into a 9x13 glass dish. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons salt. Microwave on high two minutes. Stir. Sprinkle with another 2 teaspoons salt. Microwave 2 minutes more. Break apart and cool. Note: the peanuts should be brown and crispy--some microwaves will require additional cooking time.
