First time I have ever been instructed to boil the walnut for three minutes, drain, then coat and bake.What is the reason for boiling.
Sometimes walnuts have a bitter taste to them - the boiling helps remove tannin, which reduces the bitterness.
Thank you. That is good to know. I made the nuts as indicated in the recipe and they are delicious. I understand about the bitter taste. After boiling, even before coating a toasting they were good tasting. I may use this technique for the walnuts I use in making my granola.
