Step 4: Cook the Syrup

Place the sugar and water in a medium sized skillet. Bring to a boil and stir just enough to melt the sugar. Do not stir too much or it may crystalize. Cook until amber. This will take about 4-5 minutes.
<p>Sounds perfect! I like the idea of the soda to lighten it up. I'll try that next time. Thanks for the comment.</p>
Made this ! It was amazing. I did modify a bit though. With the cup of sugar and water I added a 1/4 cup of corn syrup to keep it from crystalizing on the sides of the pot. Upon adding the chipotle I dropped in a tbsp or butter with a pinch or two of baking soda. Nice, light and crispy.
Thanks to everyone that voted for the Spicy Bacon Brittle. I'm very excited to be a finalist!
Now THAT sounds like some serious trail mix extravaganza ! <br>
Imagine the possibilities...
I'd take up hiking just for the snack !
I want to try!!! <br>
Will do!
Looks great. Gonna make if for hubby but use peanuts instead since he is allergic to nuts. However what temperature for the syrup? I would to make sure my sugar syrup is correct at step 4. Any info would be great. Pictures are wonderful but I do like to know the temperature. Thanks...
Sure...but the sugar is not really deep enough to use a thermometer. I went by color. The shot of the amber color was right before I turned off the heat and added the chipotle. Hope that helps. Just stick right with it and don't let it go too far. Let me know how it goes. Thanks so much!
Looks really good!!!!!
This looks beyond amazing - that is gorgeous bacon!
Thanks!! mmmm....bacon....
