When I used a recipe for peanut brittle that worked in a higher altitude in a microwave it burned. Should I use less time or power? How do I know it is the temp. for a nice brittle?
I make peanut brittle in the microwave all the time and it comes out perfect.
I live at 2700 ft. my suggestion would be to cut down the cooking time and/or the cooking temperature.
I cook mine 2 minutes, stir; cook 2 more minutes stir, then a final 2 minutes. I don't cook it a straight 6 minutes to avoid hot spots and burning. hope this helps.
