What's the best method of cleaning pots when candy making?
I just made some peanut brittle and now I have to clean up. One problem though. The mix has practically solidified itself to everything it was in--the spoon, the pan, the cookie sheet, everything! How do I get something so hard off of my stuff?
Soak the pan, spoon, etc., in hot water and dish soap. If you use a dish detergent like Dawn that has a degreaser in it, all the better.
If that doesn't do the trick, you may have to put the pot back on the stove to simmer the water for a bit to get the sugars to dissolve again.
