Spiced Curried Walnuts

Spiced Curried Walnuts


1 lb walnut halves
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin



Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

First you need to blanch walnuts for about a minute in boiling water. Drain and toss well with sugar and oil. Let stand for about 10 minutes.

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.

Spread walnuts in a single layer and place in the middle of the oven.

Check and turn the walnuts every 7-10 minutes until golden. I find the process is about 25 minutes but be careful - one extra minute can turn your golden nuts black.

Remove golden nuts and put in a large bowl. Mix all spices and then toss with the warm nuts.

Spread nuts in a single layer to cool. Once cool, store in a sealed container and Enjoy!!
