So what does the Holidays mean around our home? Christmas baking, Christmas baking and Christmas candy making....Really it does!!!
I make over 14 different sweet treats to share with family and family alike.
When I was giving the chance a few weeks ago thanks to Smiley360.com and Pompeian to sample a new product called Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Spray I couldn't wait to give it a workout with some of my holiday candy making.
I first learned Pompeian Grapeseed Oil (Pompeian is on Facebook) is an all natural cooking spray that is imported from France. It is a rich source of Vitamin E and antioxidants. And I love that Pompeian Grapeseed Oil is propellant free by using a new designed pouch system which help protect the oil from damaging light. For more product information, click here
So I decided to use a mist of Pompeian Grapeseed Oil on my pans I use to make my homemade peanut brittle and see if it would work under such hot and sticky conditons.
2 cups granulated white sugar
1 cup white syrup (corn syrup)
1 scant cup water
2 cups raw peanuts
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter - I cut the butter up in cubes to help it incorporate quicker.
1 teaspoon salt
Boil first 3 ingredients over medium heat to soft ball stage.
Cook until light brown (hard crack), stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and continue to stir while adding add baking soda, salt and butter.
|Do not over stir the baking soda/salt and butter in, otherwise you will knock all of the air bubbles out of the brittle and it will be hard.|
Pour out onto 2 Pompeian Grapeseed oil Spray coated cookie sheets - DO NOT STRETCH OUT!!!
