Salty and Sweet Walnuts

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

These walnuts are great to serve to you guests at a party...the combination of sweet and salty is a different taste from the regular spiced or sweet nuts...I think you will really go for these...make lots of these, cause you will need them...they go fast! Note: these nuts will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week, also, try to use only lard if you can for stir-frying the nuts, as it produces better results.

Nice to crunch to these nuts! Next time I might sprinkle some additional salt on them when I pull them out of the oil. Thanks for the recipe Kit!
