don’t be afraid to make nougat at home it is so easy,
all you need is a thermometer and a stand mixer.
homemade nougat tastes so great compared to the shop bought stuff.
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp corn syrup
3 egg whites (room temperature)
1/3 cup pistachios
1/3 cup dried cranberries
in a pan add the water, sugar, honey and corn syrup
stir until the sugar has melted and clip on a candy thermometer, do not stir it again.
once it heats to 112c start whipping the egg whites in a stand mixer
the sugar needs to heat to 120c, so by the time it gets from 112c to 120c the egg whites should be starting to peak.
once it gets to 120c remove from heat and put into a metal jug.
pour into the egg mixture in a slow continuous stream until it is all Incorporated,
turn up speed and mix for 4/6 minutes until mixture is thick and firm.
put in to oiled pan layer with wafer paper and smooth with a hot spatula
sprinkle some more nuts and cranberries on top.
leave to harden over night.
