Sensational I heat up the nuts for 5 minutes and add cooked syrup 305-310 and turns out amazing
10 minutes to get to 300°F? Maybe in a vacuum on the moon. Bin my kitchen, it’s been over 20 minutes, and I’m still at 250°. And yes, I have good equipment. So far, this is a disappointment.
This flawed recipe is fixable. Adding the room temperature nuts to the hot candy causes it to seize up in the pan. Increase baking soda to 3/4 teaspoon and while the candy is coming to to temperature on the stove, spread the nuts out on a baking sheet and warm them at 250 degrees for 5 minutes or so. Add the warm nuts to the sugar mixture and spread on the rimmed baking sheet as usual.
