“A scrumptious concoction of candied walnuts, incorporating cream sherry, orange zest and brown sugar. These freeze well.” - by Kathy
Original recipe yields 5 cups
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- Place the brown sugar, white sugar, salt, sherry, orange zest, and orange extract into a heavy saucepan, and stir until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat, stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute. Stir in the butter. Remove from heat, and stir in the walnut halves to coat with syrup.
- Spread the candied walnut halves out onto the prepared baking sheet, and allow to cool thoroughly, at least 1 hour. Break into bite-size chunks to serve.

"Thank you. I made them as a test before Thanksgiving. Their wonderful and will make them for the BIG day..." See more"
"Thanks for your ratings and reviews everyone! Just for some additional info/help, these are not glazed walnuts -- they are supposed to be sort of crystalized. I think adding another cup or so of nuts ..." See morewould be a great way to use up the excess sugar mixture, and using all zest and no extract is another good idea for a subtler taste. Thank you for trying these out; I'm glad you've enjoyed them!"
