• 1 cup sugar
• 1/3 cup water
• Pinch cream of tartar
• 1 cup walnut halves
• 3/4 tablespoon dried rosemary
• Sea salt crystals

1. In a medium pot, combine sugar, water and cream of tartar. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cover the pot and let boil approximately 5 minutes undisturbed. Remove lid and examine color of the molten sugar. When the mixture turns amber, quickly add walnuts and rosemary, gently stirring to incorporate.

2. Pour brittle onto a silicone baking sheet (Silpat) or buttered cookie sheet. Spread candy thin with a buttered spatula to achieve glass-like texture. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt crystals while candy is still warm.

Tip: Fresh leaves and flowers can be tossed straight into candies, though they may become discolored; it is best to toss delicate herbs in at the last minute.
