Have you ever noticed frost? Frost is possible when it is a clear night in the dark fall. The temperature outside falls below the freezing point and the ground becomes covered in ice crystals. And we call these brittle ice crystals ‘frost’. However, did you ever imagine what it would be like if peanuts are covered with frost? Tangshuang Peanut is such a dish that is cover with frost-like sugar.
Today, I’d like to introduce Tangshuang Peanut. In the east of Asia lies a country. That’s China. Tangshuang Peanut comes from China, an ancient country of over 2,000 years of history. The Chinese people have a fantasy for cooking dishes. From Shang Dynastie, a minister called Yiyin started to exercise power with a kettle on his back. He told the king that governing a country was like cooking. Besides fantasy, the Chinese people also have a gift for cooking. Tangshuang Peanut is such an example.
Now let’s continue our topic—Tangshuang Peanut. Tangshuang Peanut is made of sugar, oil and peanuts, feasting your eyes and appetite. It looks like a layer of frost or snow throwing on peanuts and wears them. It tastes sweet. And it’s popular among children.
Wanna know how to make Shuangtang Peanut? Next, I’ll give the peanut candy recipe and introduce the cooking method in detail.
Step 1 Put raw peanuts into a roaster. Bake ground nuts at 150 degrees for 20 minutes. During the process of baking, you’re supposed to stir-fry several times. So Peanuts in the roasting machine will be heated evenly (if for industry, a roasting machine is necessary).
Step 2 Get roasted peanuts out and cool them.
Step 3 Pour sugar and water into pan. Sugar melts in the water. Then bring the fire to a large degree. Boil them and mix at low heat for a while into syrup.
Step 4 Turn down the fire until big bubbles grows in the liquid and syrup becomes thicker.
Step 5 Put roasted peanuts into thick and transparent syrup. Stir and Mix well with a wooden shovel quikly. Until white frost-like sugar covers peanuts, time is ok.
Step 6 Turn off the fire and cool Tangshuang Peanuts. Then when it’s cool, it becomes crisp and tasty. You can have a taste.
Step 3 Don’t overbake sugar. If the liquid becomes golden yellow, it’s too late.You can use small fire to cook sugar.
Step 6 Flatten Tangshuang Peanuts for cooling before enjoying. Temperature of peanuts lowers and peanuts will be hard and solid.
When the frosted peanuts are completely cool, store thmem in an airtight container(can or jaror glass bottle) to prevent them from being moist and crunky.
For cleaning, solid sugar will solidify on the surface of the pan and remember not to shade it away by a shovel. Because you’ll find it difficult.
Pour some freshwater and heat the fire. Sugar will melt gradually. Then it’ll be much easier to clean the pan.
