Makes 8 ounces
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted, husked
- 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped orange peel
Butter a large baking sheet. Combine the sugar, water and lemon juice in a heavy 1-quart saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves, frequently brushing down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush. Increase the heat; boil without stirring until the syrup turns deep golden brown and a candy thermometer registers 335 degrees F, occasionally brushing down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush and swirling the pan, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and place the bottom of the saucepan in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
Allow all bubbles to disperse. Add the hazelnuts and orange peel. Stir to blend. Pour the mixture onto a prepared baking sheet. Cool until firm. Break the brittle into large pieces. Store airtight at room temperature.
