This is from Taste of Home Magazine, I believe. It is an unusual and fun flavor for the holidays or any time.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 cups walnut halves, toasted*
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

- Stir once or twice until toasty and fragrant.
- Remove from pan to cool. Nuts will continue to brown slightly after removed from oven.

- Stir in the ginger, curry powder and cayenne until smooth.
- Add sugar and honey; stir until blended.
- Stir in walnuts until well coated.
- Spread onto waxed paper lined baking sheet.
- Sprinkle with salt.

A wonderful way to dress up walnuts! The combination of spices was very unique and enjoyable. I did have some trouble getting my walnuts fully coated - I'm not sure whether this is because I had to use walnut pieces instead of halves, or whether the amounts listed were a little too conservative. This is my first time with a recipe like this so it may just be that I didn't try hard enough too! I'll definitely keep the recipe on file and see if maybe next time I can improve or improvise to make it perfect.
LOVE IT! perfect balance of sweet and mild spicy. doubled the recipe and covered the walnuts perfectly. cant wait to share some of the spoils with my neighbor who keeps sharing her walnuts with us.
