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:

Ingredients:
1 cup walnut halves
4 tbsp vegetable oil
4 tbsp sugar

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

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

Variations:
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.

  • 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 :)
