Simple Sweet and Savory Spiced Walnuts

Recipe by Chef Kate
READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 2 cups




  • Have ready a silpat on a sheet pan or a parchment lined pan on a surface which can withstand heat.
  • Mash the garlic with the brown sugar and spices to form a paste.
  • Melt the butter in a non stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the sugar/spice paste to the skillet and, using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir to combine the butter and paste (about a minute or two).
  • Once it is roughly combined, add the walnuts and stir to coat; this will take no more than a minute or two.
  • When the walnuts are coated, transfer them to the silpat or parchment.
  • Spread them out with your wooden spatula and allow to cool.
  • Store the cooled nuts in a tin or jar.
  • Use in salads (butter lettuce, beets, blue cheese and these nuts--super!), or as a nibble with cocktails/apertifs.
