    Sackville's Note:

    If you like nuts, you will probably enjoy this dish. The taste is hard to describe, it's like nothing I've ever had before -- a little bit nutty, a little bit sweet, a little bit savoury. Goes great with Mean Chef's Perfect Rice (#53520). Serves two very hungry people, or more with a salad.

      Delicious and simple to make! My guests loved it. The cinnamon in this dish goes a long way - I would use less in the future.

      Great flavors. Love sweet and sour. Taste great! Simple to make. I think this recipe is Persian in orgin but with that part of the world they have conquored each other one time or another. Suggest toasting walnuts 1st, adding the sugar to food processor along with walnuts to grind, helps to keep oil in walnuts from being released. Thanks!
