- Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add the sugar to a medium sized pot. Cook over medium to high heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts. When it melts, stop stirring and watch the mixture carefully as sugar turns to caramel very quickly and you don’t want it to burn. You can swirl the pot a bit.
- As soon as it turns a light caramel color, add the pine nuts and butter and stir for 2 minutes. Then, add the rosemary and half of the coarse salt.
- Pour the mixture into the baking pan immediately. Sprinkle with the remaining coarse salt. Refrigerate for at least one hour so that it cools.
- Fill a little bag with rice. Poke little holes into the bag with a needle. Place on the bottom of an airtight container.
- To store, break brittle into pieces and place in container, over the rice bag.
