Carmelized Walnuts

Glazed walnuts are used as garnish or additon to many chinese dishes. But it may also serve as a great snack or elevenses. One way or another - here is recipe to prepare it:

1 cup walnut halves
4 tbsp vegetable oil
4 tbsp sugar

Toast walnut halves over medium heat in vegetable oil and sugar until caramelized.

The edges might get a little brown- but that's normal.

Instead of sugar you may also use honey. Just mind to not sear it.
You can use brown sugar if you like.
Oil can be replaced with butter.
A little pinch of cinnamon is tasty addition to your elevenses.


  • Oh, I love walnuts! I never thought of caramelising them, though.

  • I first met carmelized walnuts when I was in Italy - they have it either carmelized or just coated in honey. Recipe is simplest of all - take walnuts & put it into honey jar :}

  • It's rather multinational right now - mostly of it's simplicity, I think. In my house we eat walnuts in honey most often - great taste without any afford :)
