1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon butter
10 oz of fresh whole walnuts (if you have a pound bag, use another tablespoon of sugar and water)
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a large saute pan melt the sugar with the water and butter then toss in the nuts and sauté on medium heat until mostly dry. Then spread out on a foil lined baking sheet sprinkle with salt and roast at 275 degrees for about 20 min, tossing them once. Let cool completely then sprinkle with more salt if you like and try not to eat them all in one night! They are wonderful on top of salads or a hot fudge sundae - or by the handful!
Post Note: That other bowl is apple compote that I made to top my brioche french toast - which is coming up!
Post Post Note: I'm expecting my Pecans any day now in the mail from Texas - so look out for a spiced pecan recipe too!
