- 300 grams of peeled peanuts
- 700 grams of jaggery
- ½ cup of milk
- Butter for greasing
- Grease a smooth stone surface with butter.
- Break the rapadura.
- In a pan, place the rapadura and bring to a boil.
- Add the milk.
- Without stopping stirring, leave it on the fire until it reaches the soft candy point.
- Remove from heat.
- Add the peanuts.
- Using a wooden spoon, beat well until sugar starts to form on the sides of the pan.
- Pour onto the greased surface.
- Flatten well and cut into small pieces.
If you prefer, you can pour the candy into a greased dish and, once it has cooled, cut the candy into small pieces.
Soft bullet point: It takes approximately 8 minutes to reach this point. Using a spoon, drop some of the syrup into a glass of cold water. It will be done when, when you remove the syrup from the water, a little ball forms that soon loses its shape.
Rapadura can be found in good supermarkets, at a specific stall in open-air markets or at the Municipal Market in your city.
