Mom's Best Peanut Brittle
Silpats work great with this! I had no problems with this recipe. I forgot the salt but it did not matter. I read many of the negative reviews and for all those who complain of taffy-like consistency; you simply did not get it hot enough. I think some of the problems reported stem from not having a heavy enough pan. Even using an infrared thermometer there is still some guesswork about the "right" temperature. It will show hotter near the sides than the center. For this candy you are looking for the sugar to be as hot as it can possibly get without getting a burnt taste. Color is as good of an indicator as a $40 thermometer. When you first start to smell burned sugar and it has a light brown color you're done. It takes quite a while to get to this point but once it is done it is done and you need to be quick about spreading it. The burnt peanut problem is probably from using roasted peanuts instead of raw. Look at the back of the bag when you're buying peanuts. Bags of raw peanuts usually have a peanut brittle recipe on the back...
