Mrs. Ruby Shaw’s delectable peanut brittle.

Among the many delicacies available at the Florida Folk Festival May 27-29, don’t miss Mrs. Ruby Shaw’s peanut brittle. The venerable Mrs. Shaw turns out batches by the score, and you can get yours at the festival, which is entering its 59th year at Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs.

Here’s a photo from the Florida Photographic Collection of Mrs. Shaw in 1992, demonstrating her technique. The results are simply too good to pass up.
