The practice of homemade peanut candy

  1. Fried peanuts. Put the peanuts in the pan and stir fry first. In the process of frying, pay attention to the low heat, avoid over-frying. Frying until the surface of the peanuts oily, and there will be fragrance overflow.
  2. Place the fried peanuts on the panel and use a rolling pin or other objects to crush the peanuts. Blow off the peanut skin. Too much peanut skin will affect the taste of peanut candy, making it taste bitter.
  3. Boil sugar. Put all granulated sugar in a dry, oil-free pan, boil slowly over low heat, about 10-30 minutes (if using gas or natural gas, about 10 minutes, if it is an induction cooker, it will take 30 minutes). The sign of boiled sugar is to see that the sugar in the pot is not bubbled, the surface is bright, but do not turn black.
  4. Turn off the fire. Pour the crushed peanuts into the pan and stir together with sugar. Quickly spread out on a cutting board, roll it out with a rolling pin while it is hot, about 1 cm thick, and use a knife to smooth the sugar cubes around.
  5. Afterward, cut into finger-sized thin strips while hot. The process must be done quickly while hot. If the sugar has cooled down, it will be very difficult to cut.
  6. Store the prepared peanut candy in a sealed environment to prevent moisture.
