Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Mom-Cooking

Hello Ashton Pointe! We all crave certain desserts that only our mom can do justice. However, if you are unable to make it home for the holidays and want to bring your mother’s kitchen into your apartment here is one recipe a lot of mom’s are famous for.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  

    Directions

    1. Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
    2. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads.
    3. Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter and baking soda; pour at once onto cookie sheet. With 2 forks, lift and pull peanut mixture into rectangle about 14×12 inches; cool. Snap candy into pieces.
