However here is one that I used to bag up and sell at craft shows.. Sugared Walnuts (or Pecans or Almonds)**

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine brown sugar, milk, grated orange peel, salt and cinnamon in large saucepan.
  2. Stir to combine. Cook over low heat until candy thermometer registers 236 degrees.
  3. Remove from heat and add nuts and vanilla.
  4. Stir mixture until it begins to look grainy.
  5. Turn out onto wax paper and separate nuts to cool entirely.
  6. Will keep in covered containers in refrigerator but do not freeze.
  7. **Does not work well on Brazil nuts. Coating does not stick.
  8. *I have used up to 4 cups of nuts per batch with good results.

Delicious! And I was able to stretch the recipe to 4 cups of walnut halves with no problem. It takes about an hour from start to finish, but the coating needs to set a couple of hours in order for them not to stick together.

Very tasty nuts! I found the precise directions to be especially helpful. I liked the hint of citrus from the orange zest in particular. I halved the recipe, but used 2 cups of nuts, and it came out perfect. These will be great tossed on salads. Thanks!
