Taste of Honey
Makes 24 pieces
Chewy, peanut, and salty, this confection is addictive. Break it into irregularly shaped morsels just the right size for a delicious mouthful. Wrap each bite in a square of waxed paper or plastic wrap so the morsels won’t stick to each other. For a more sophisticated taste, try this with other nuts; toasted peeled hazelnuts are especially good.

Line a sheet pan with lightly buttered aluminum foil or a nonstick baking mat.
Combine the butter, sugar, honey, cream, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low for 4 to 5 minutes, until the mixture turns a deep amber color. Adjust the heat to maintain a steady boil and stir to keep the mixture from boiling over or scorching.
Stir in the peanuts and immediately scrape the mixture onto the lined sheet pan, spreading it in a single layer with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the surface evenly with the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt.
Let the peanut brittle cool thoroughly for about 1 hour, or until hardened. Lift it from the pan and break into irregularly shaped pieces about ¾ inch across.
Cut waxed paper or plastic wrap into 2-inch squares and wrap each piece individually. Stored at room temperature in a cool, dry place, the brittle keeps indefinitely.
