Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a hard ball stage (250 degrees to 266 degrees F), a rolling boil over medium heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon for 10 minutes, until cashews are golden. If the honey starts to get too deep in color, remove it because it is coming close to burning.
Pour mixture onto a piece of aluminum foil and allow to cool completely.
When cooled, break the brittle into pieces and store chilled in an airtight container. Will keep for 2 weeks.
Yields: 1 cup
