Hi, im trying to cinnamon glaze some peanuts. Ive used different kinds of sugar and different cooking times but i cant stop the glaze crystallizing. I tried not stirring and ended up with a rock solid lump. Admittedly im not weighing anything.
Could somebody tell me what im doing wrong please, how do i get the glaze shiny? Am i using the wrong ingredients?
I made some cinnamon glazed almonds once. I didn't use a recipe, just put the almonds in a cast iron pan, sprinkled with a good amount of sugar and cinnamon, and stirred them over medium heat until the sugar melted onto the almonds.
I then turned them out onto foil and spread them out.
I haven't made them again--too good.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
Hi, well i used a cup of water, a knob of butter and about 2cups of demerara sugar. I heated them until the mixture was bubbling and then i added the nuts. I kept stirring till the liquid was gone (by then they had crystallized) ,and then i turned them out into a metal tray to cool.
Hmm maybe i should use water at all? wrong type of sugar?
