This is from Taste of Home Magazine, I believe. It is an unusual and fun flavor for the holidays or any time.

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.
- 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

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
