In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, water, butter and corn syrup and bring to a boil.

Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the baking soda.
The mixture will bubble.
Stir in the nuts, then immediately scrape the brittle onto a large rimmed nonstick bakingsheet.
Using the back of a large spoon (oil it lightly if it sticks), spread the brittle into a thin, even layer.
Sprinkle with salt.
Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Break the brittle into large shards and serve.
