Peanut brittle

Dissolve as much sugar as you can in a pan of water, bring to the boil and add more sugar. Boil this still further 'till it's almost boiled dry and starts going sticky. Stir in as many crushed peanuts as you can without it going too dry. Spread mixture about half a cm thick on greaseproof paper/a metal plate & as it sets, chop it into card sized diamonds. You get a fairly solid peanut cake thing. Try adding a little flour when you mix in the peanuts to soften it? ps. This trashes your pan, so pan bashing it is a good threat!
