Need a quick gift to bring to the seder?
There’s no need to run out to buy a last minute gift! Peanut brittle is an american classic that is loved by all. This recipe is inspired by the book, Sweet Tempation by Nicki Trench.
What makes it extra easy is that all you need is:
2 cups of sugar,
2 tablespoons of corn syrup,
1 cup of any kind of nut-roasted lightly
finely grated zest of an orange (optional)
1-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2- Put sugar and corn syrup in heavy saucepan and heat with low flame until sugar has dissolved and reaches 270 degrees on a candy thermometer stirring continuously. (Honestly- I didnt have a candy thermometer handy so I just heated it till it was caramel consistency). Remove saucepan from flame and stir in nuts (and optional orange zest).
3-Pour syrup into a jelly roll pan and flatten with a spoon. Let cool.
4-When solid, break off pieces and store in an airtight container or wrap in cellophane bags and tie with a decorative ribbon or raffia.
-NOTE -This recipe contains corn, which is permissable for Sephardic Jews. Please consult with your rabbi.
