- In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water and lemon juice. Over high heat, bring the mixture to a boil and cook, without stirring, until it turns a golden amber color - about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
- Add the walnuts - stir the walnuts with a wooden spoon to completely coat them in the mixture. Using a fork, carefully move out the nuts, one at a time, to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. While working quickly, try to let any excess caramel drip off the walnuts. Let the walnuts sit on the parchment for about 5 minutes to harden.
