Seems that we have been getting a lot of comments about our tree. Ü Have heard from both Alex and John that they will be helping next year to put up the tree. Don't really think they know what is involved...we'll see.
Made Juan one of his favorites today...Peanut Brittle. Easy recipe and here it is for anyone interested:
Microwave Peanut Brittle - Yields 1.5 pounds
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup salted peanuts
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1. Butter a cookie sheet. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a 2 quart glass bowl that has been buttered or sprayed with Pam and microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir in peanuts and microwave on high 3-1/2 minutes more, then stir in buter and vanilla and microwave for 1-1/2 minutes.
2. Stir in baking soda until light and foamy. Pour onto cookie sheet and spread thin. Cool completely and break into pieces and serve.
This recipe uses a 900 watt microwave so adjust for higher wattage ovens.
