Sugar Peanuts
January 12, 2009

This is a great recipe. It originates from Africa where it is a restaurant and street food snack. It's called Sugar Peanuts. You may want to wait until the boiling liquid has come to the thin thread stage ~ 223-234ºF (106-112ºC) before adding the peanuts. They will have time to cook before reaching the hard crack stage when all of the water has evaporated. The temperature will drop and you will have to bring it back, but that happens pretty fast. HTH
