Cashew Brittle

  Combine the sugar, syrup, and water together in a deep, heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Insert candy thermometer and cook on medium heat to hard ball stage (250 F.), stirring frequently. Add the nuts and continue to boil to 300 F, stirring constantly. Keep a close eye on the syrup temperature as it takes quite a while to reach the 290 F mark, then all of a sudden it spurts to 300 F and it is finished. Stir in the soda and pour onto a buttered cookie sheet. Break when cool.

Variation: Peanuts may be substituted.

2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup water
3 cups raw, unsalted cashews
2 teaspoons soda
