Candied Walnuts or Pecans
Prep time: 0:15 Overall time: 0:45
8 servings scale / convert
2 cups raw walnuts or pecans, shelled
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
Salt (to taste)
Preheat oven to 300°F. Whisk sugar, salt and water in a large saucepan until sugar is mostly dissolved. Add nuts and cook, stirring, until sugar completely dissolves and mixture crystalizes. Place nonstick foil on a baking sheet or use parchment. Spread nuts onto baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Turn and stir nuts and bake for 15 minutes more. Allow nuts to cool, then store in an airtight container.
These are great for putting on salads, although a few might make a good snack.
