Revel in rich herbal flavors with this crunch Walnut Rosemary Brittle.

• 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.


Sarah Goldschmidt whips up herbal candies for lucky family and friends. She is looking forward to her first curated exhibit and the launch of an artisanal marketplace called Aeolus Studio.
