I don't brag on myself unless it's warrented - and this time, it's warrented. these nuts are fucking awesome.
enough peanuts to cover your pan. I used a 10-inch nonstick skillet.
light brown sugar
half a spoonful of red curry paste
a few dashes of soy sauce
Combine ingredients in a bowl. Stir, whisk, play with your hands, etc, until everything's uniform. Taste frequently.
Transfer to the pan. Turn burner on 3. Every minute or two, taste, flip or otherwise move the nuts around, and taste again. Pull the second you have a perfect one - carryover heat will take the rest to where they need to go.
If you put them in a shaped container, you can make them hold their shape as they cool.
I'm glad I can stop writing this just so my hands are free to eat more. Damn, these are yummy.
