Valentines Day is a week away. Recently, I came across this unique candy recipe with rosemary. This herb-infused brittle might be one way to sweeten my sweetie for this romantic day! Enjoy! Denise
Walnut Rosemary Brittle with Sea Salt
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of water
pinch of cream of tartar
1 cup of walnut halves
2/4 teaspoon of dried rosemary
Sea Salt Crystals
1. In a medium pot, combine sugar, water and cream of tartar. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cover the pot and let it boil approximately 5 minutes undisturbed. Remove lid and examine color of the molten sugar. When the mixture turns amber, quickly add walnuts and rosemary, gently stirring to incorporate.
2. Pour brittle onto a silicone baking sheet (Silpat) or buttered cookie sheet. Spread candy thin with a buttered spatula to achieve glass-like texture. Top with a light sprinkle of sea salt crystals while candy is still warm.
