Peanut brittle

December 11, 2012

If you don't mind standing over a boiling caudron, stirring thick, sticky candy for hours, here's a delicious project. Peanut brittle takes time and effort, so it is not for the weak. Bob makes it every year, and says it takes him 12 months to get up the energy to make it again. This was the result on Sunday night. Yummy. It is tricky to get it to the right temperature and then to spread it out on heated pans. A copy of Bob's recipe is below. If you look at his numbers on the left of the ingredients, that is the batch size he makes (6 pounds of peanuts).
