A delicious snack

Post by ConsrvYank1 » Thu Jul 01, 2010 1:29 pm

I love anything with brown sugar, and this recipe is no exception.

Carmel Coated Walnuts

4 cups walnuts, one stick butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white corn syrup, 1/8 tsp. cream of tartar, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. baking soda

1) Mix together brown sugar, butter, white corn syrup, cream of tartar, and salt.

2) Bring to a boil for 3 minutes stiring often. Remove from heat.

3) Add baking soda and stir well until it settles.

4) Pour over walnuts and stir until well coated.

5) Pour into a large pan. Bake at 200 degrees for 1 and 1/2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.

I made half of this recipe, and it still makes a lot. :drool:

I don't like walnuts. Do you think it would be good with almonds instead?

Yes, it would be great with almonds, peanuts, Cashews, or pecans!

They were even better today than yesterday when I made them. Be very careful, they are addicting. Maybe I will have to lose the recipe. :teehee:

Bacon and onions would not add one thing to the most delicious sandwich I ever made. I just got back from the Farmer's Market where I bought fresh grown local tomatoes. I also stopped at a grocery store that I discovered made their own Italian bread. Now this bread is just slightly crusty, and maybe that's why it worked so well. So mayo on the bread, sliced tomatoes, salt and freshly ground black pepper. It was absolutely delicious, yet simple. :drool: times 2! I don't think it would have worked so well if the bread was too crusty.
