Ingredients

  • 170g of shelled, unsalted pistachios
  • 270g of sugar
  • 1/4 cup each of water and light corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 tbsp of butter
  • 3/8 of a tsp of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt

Method

Place 170g of shelled, unsalted pistachios on an oven tray and roast in a pre-heated 180C oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow the nuts to cool.

In a saucepan combine 270g of sugar, a 1/4 cup each of water and light corn syrup and 2 1/2 tbsp of butter. Cook over medium heat until the mixture is a light caramel colour. Remove from heat and quickly whisk in 3/8 of a tsp of baking powder, a pinch of salt and the pistachios.

With a buttered spatula spread the mixture quickly onto a non-stick baking sheet.

Cool completely before breaking to serve.
