Peanut brittle recipe on this site wrong!

Peanut brittle recipe on this site wrong!

Beware! On the recipe for peanut brittle they have you add the peanuts with the sugar mixture. Like the mindful little cook, I did as was told. Had been up most the night making my chocolate covered cherries, and everything was going great. Well, as I have always made brittle with spanish peanuts, and had added them at the last, I questioned this. Then said they must know something I don't and did as the recipe said. About 275 degrees the mixture turned red! By the time I got it off the stove, the skins which had settled on the bottom were burned! I went ahead and added the rest of the ingredients and poured this ugly, bitter tasting mess onto my buttered pan. I turned around and my house was filled with smoke! Believe me when I advise you not to put the peanuts in with the sugars! I'm heartsick about it, this is a first for me. I have never ruined my candy before. I live 65 miles from the nearest store so can't just run down and get more nuts!

I made the microwaveable Peanut Brittle on this site about 30 times during the holidays using peanuts, cashews, and almonds. All were fantastic, except the almonds. The almonds kind of burned, but later realized that the almonds were not roasted as the other nuts were. Of course, the microwaveable recipe puts the nuts in AFTER the sugar and syrup has a chance to cook for 5 minutes (with a stir in between). If you like the Spanish Peanuts, you might try the microwaveable Peanut Britte and add the nuts at the appropriate time. Personally, I would cook them only a couple of minutes before adding the vanilla and butter and cooking for one more minute. Adding Baking Soda last which stops the cooking and neutralizes things.

I just made this recipe, I didn''t have a candy thermometer, another recipe I had was to slowly cook mixture until it turned golden brown then add the butter/baking soda and vanilla onto a buttered cookie sheet spreading with a spatula it came out as advertised, good luck hope this helps
