Sugar Glazed Walnuts
I am always making a lettuce salad with craisins, sugared walnuts, feta cheese with poppyseed dressing. It is so quick and easy and yummy. I have been searching the easiest way to toast my walnuts and sugar them. I finally found this recipe and I love it because it is so easy and you can't burn your nuts. I found it at allrecipes.com but I have adjusted it some so I will just put it the way I make it.
3 cups walnut halves (mine are straight from the freezer where I store my nuts)
3\4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup water
In a 2 quart glass bowl combine walnut halves, sugar and water. Cook in microwave oven on high for about 6 minutes. Stir several times during the cooking. Cook until the sugar has caramelized. Pour out onto a piece of parchment paper and let cool. Chop them up and you are ready to go. This will make more than one salad.
