These walnuts are really good! I mean that they are fantastic, irresistible and purely addictive. Try them and you will not be disappointed in fact you will love the results or either hate me for posting this recipe that you will not be able to stop eating even if you wanted to.
I love the salt and the sweet together. They were great on this salad. But, you don’t have to put them with anything. You could snack on them all day long. I am not kidding. I put the leftovers in a bag in the pantry and every time I was in the kitchen they kept calling my name.
I changed the recipe a bit. First of all I had no maple syrup. I just used plain pancake syrup. And I totally misread the directions and added all the spices to the syrup. After pouring them on parchment paper to dry and waiting over thirty minutes I got impatient and put them in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes . I loved them. They were perfectly glazed and yummy.
The second time I followed the recipe to a T. They were good, but I liked my mistake better! Here is the recipe for you to try and with the holidays coming up they will make a perfect gift!
Spicy Maple Glazed Walnuts from Shutterbean
Makes 2 cups
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 cups walnuts
- In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne, ginger and cinnamon; set aside. Pour the maple syrup into a large bowl and set aside. ( I mixed these in the same bowl)
- In a large nonstick skillet, toast the walnuts over medium-high heat, stirring or shaking the pan constantly, until they are hot, about 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn. Immediately add the nuts to the maple syrup and toss to coat. Stir in the spice mixture until the nuts are evenly coated. Spread the walnuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Let cool completely before serving about 20 minutes.
- I placed them on parchment paper and after 30 minutes placed them in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the sugar glazed.
