Thank you. I made them as a test before Thanksgiving. Their wonderful and will make them for the BIG day
Thanks for your ratings and reviews everyone! Just for some additional info/help, these are not glazed walnuts -- they are supposed to be sort of crystalized. I think adding another cup or so of nuts would be a great way to use up the excess sugar mixture, and using all zest and no extract is another good idea for a subtler taste. Thank you for trying these out; I'm glad you've enjoyed them!
Another "different" treat. Was easy to make and very well received at our holiday party. Had requests for recipe which is always a good sign.
Made this for Thanksgiving and they were a hit at both family dinners. The only complaint I have is that they are sugary (sandy texture) rather than glazed. I will play with it a bit to see if I can change that for Christmas. Also, there is a lot of syrup and nuts that were wasted after cooling because there was a slushy "cluster" left because of excess syrup. I ended up throwing it and the nuts encased in it out. I had added an extra handful of nuts prior to cooling because there was so much excess syrup, but it could really could have stood another cup or two. I will try that as well to avoid throwing any of it away.
Really good flavor, but they sugar crystalized. I omitted the orange extract and used the zest a whole orange. They went well with pear & gorgonzola salad.
I used pecans because that's what I had on hand . I hand-squeezed the juice from 2 California Cuties (Mandarins) in place of the extract letting some pulp fall in to the nuts. I threw them in a 350degree oven for 1 minutes to crisp them up. Taste great!! I will add them to sauteed green beans.
