    Nut Brittle

    14oz granulated sugar

    6oz soft brown sugar

    6oz golden syrup

    1/4 pint water

    2oz butter

    1/4 teas bicarb of soda

    12oz chopped nuts

    Place sugars,syrup and water in a large heavy pan over a low heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Add the butter and bring to the boil. Boil gently until a little of the mixture dropped into cold water separates into little hard threads (310f/154c) Stir in the bicarb of soda and the nuts. Pour immediately into a buttered shallow tin and mark into pieces when almost set. Break when cold and enjoy!

    I believe that corn syrup goes by the name of glucose syrup in the UK.

    Try to find an alternative though...corn syrup jacks up your system and makes your cells age (seriously look it up).

  • Christina and Emma are right. One USA brand I think is Karo or Caro light corn syrup. Golden is the same.

    Tricot (spelling?), honey, or pancake may work as well, but the taste and depending on recipe, maybe consistency will be different.

    Corn Syrup is the American name for Golden Syrup, not glucose syrup.

    Just use ordinary brown sugar, you don't need syrup, except maybe a little regular syrup. All it does is change the texture of the brittle, slightly.

    Try using golden syrup.

    It should be widely availiable where you are at.

    Don't use maple syrup.. bleh unless you want that flavor in your brittle. Maple is also not the same consistency.
