I can’t get my sugar to completely liquify and I really, really want to make almond brittle. I’ve tried, two times, to liquify the sugar and it melts on the bottom but never the top. The recipe calls for 3 cups of sugar (so yes, at this point I have wasted 6 cups of it) and 1/4 cup of water. Melt it at medium high heat.
Before turning on the burner, I stirred the sugar to mix in with the water. Once all of the sugar looked wet, I turned on the burner and let it go. A couple of times I gently swirled the pot around, but otherwise left it alone.
The sugar seems to start turning colour between the 15 to 20 minute mark. It gently bubbles throughout the time it is on the stove.
Do I need to swirl more?
Do I need to adjust my heat?
Would adding a bit more water help?
Please, please help me :pout:
