Last night's culinary adventure: peanut brittle! People here grow tons of peanuts, though they call them groundnuts. We eat them every possible way (last night's dinner also featured West African groundnut soup), but I was afraid to try candy, perhaps because of my fear of molten sugar. My inaugural batch of brittle is a little dark and a little too sticky (definitely not because of humidity!), but folks couldn't stop nibbling, so it was edible at least.

I take no responsibility for any loss of fillings.
