These walnuts were very good. The addition of the rosemary added a nice subtle flavor. I used dried rosemary and I crushed it with a mortar and pestle before adding it with the other spices. I baked the walnuts for a total of 30 minutes to make them extra toasted. The walnuts were extra special as a topping on a green salad.
