Smoky Peanut Brittle
By: Hugh Acheson
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
3 1/4 cups roasted peanuts
1 cup white granulated sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter, cubed
1/4 cup honey
Place all ingredients in a stainless steel pan over high heat. While stirring continuously, bring the sugar to a deep caramel color without burning it. When it has thickened and is a nice mahogany color, pull out vanilla beans and turn off the heat.
Quickly spray down a parchment sheet with non-stick spray. Place this on a baking sheet and pour the caramel evenly on the parchment. Cool and then break up to use.
