I posted a yummy peanut brittle recipe a few days ago. It’s an easy recipe, but it’s a bit like making biscuits. You’ve got to do things right to make it turn out the way you want it to. This morning I came across a great instructional video by the “Food Network’s” Alton Brown. I love watching his cooking show and his scientific approach to cooking and baking. Take a look and see if this will help you make the yummy peanut brittle for the family. I started oiling my pan after seeing this and it’s helping a lot in preventing sticking. And let me tell you … using the cast iron pan to prevent hot spots is just plain brilliant. I’ll be using that trick for quite a few different dishes.
