Author Notes: The sweet nutty aroma coming from the street carts in New York City always puts me in a tizz however, I always seem to be in too sensible a mood to ever stop for a bag of the delightful sugary pecans! After munching incessantly on a bowlful of these heavenly treats at a recent dinner (by the way they were the biggest pecans I’ve seen in my life!), I decided to bite the bullet and make some myself.
To change things up, I decided to try walnuts. I loved these so much I threw them through my Arugula Salad that night. It finished the dish off perfectly. —Amelia G
Serves: 3-4 as a snack
- 1. Over a medium heat, add the sugar to a saucepan and stir gently until the sugar begins to melt.
- 2. Once it’s melted, add the walnuts and (quickly) stir thoroughly to make sure the nuts are coated. This will only take 2-3 minutes and it will get sticky!
- 3. Transfer the walnuts to a sheet of baking parchment and allow them to cool (it wont take long, maybe 5 minutes). Once they’ve cooled, break up the clumps.
