Remember good, old-fashioned peanut brittle? Good. Now forget all that and picture this: Boston-based Fig & Kindle creates a whole host of sweets, but the star of the show is their signature glass brittle, made with all natural ingredients and looking like nutty stained glass. Each corn syrup-free brittle is a work of art, handcrafted down to the placement of each nut within the glassy sugar.
And yes, you can get the standard sweet and salty peanut brittle (artisanally made in small batches, of course). But with inventive flavor combinations like walnut and rosemary, Saigon cinnamon with peanuts and wasabi peas, and toasted almonds with anise, why would you? Savory and sweet notes mingle in these brittles; are they candies, snacks, or toppings to liven up dinner? (The correct answer is: D, all of the above.)
Fig & Kindle bills itself as "an interdisciplinary food and design workshop, run by food photographer/stylist Sarah Goldschmidt and a rotating cast of characters that come from culinary and art/design backgrounds." Sarah and her crew craft each batch individually to order and ship on Mondays and Wednesdays to ensure quick in-week delivery. Perfect timing for holiday parties and gift giving (or to hide away in your sock drawer).
Now that we've got your mouth watering, you can check out the Character Approved Fig & Kindle's glass brittles as well as their delectable shortbreads and more at their Etsy Shop. How easy is that?
