Day 5 of Postapalooza to Christmas!!
My human and I made Peanut Brittle last night. Apparently each Christmas humans enjoy this treat and my Mom makes it from scratch the old fashioned way. First you have to get raw, blanched peanuts!
The you find a marble slab, clear off your knick knacks and make it all slippery with butter!
You then enlist your trusty helper - Dory the Lab - to assist in all things cooking related.
You take corn syrup, sugar and water and boil it until it gets very, VERY HOT!
Then you make sure all the tools and pullers have butter all over them...
As you can see my assistance in reading the recipe is a key factor to success in this process!
I also tried to do some quality control, but my mom said, "NO LICKING!", she is totally no fun.
Then you mix the peanuts with the sugary stuff and boil some more until it gets SUPER HOT!!!
And use tongs and stuff to pull it all out to the edges.
When it cools it really is "BRITTLE" and the human breaks it into small pieces.
Then later on it gets put into containers so people can get the peanut brittle as gifts.
It was a lot of work, but with my able assistance Mom was able to complete the task. If you would like the recipe click here, FROM THE CARD BOX and check out my humans recipe blog under "candy".
Whew - only 20 more posts until CHRISTMAS!!!
