 I was on California Walnuts web site and discovered their recipes for different candied walnuts. Sounds good and I have three bags of walnuts to use. I'll try them all this week and see how good.

                                  Maple Candied Walnuts

4 cups California walnut halves

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 tbsp sesame seeds

  1. Combine walnuts and maple syrup in a large bowl; mix until evenly coated. Stir in sesame seeds.
  2. Spread on non-stick, or parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 325°F for 25 minutes, stirring twice, until walnuts are lightly browned.
  3. Cool on baking sheet; walnuts will become dry and crunchy as they cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

                                  Honey Candied Walnuts

1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped, or in halves and pieces

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 275°F. Coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine the honey and water and stir until smooth. Add the walnuts and toss to coat them with the honey mixture. Spread evenly in the prepared pan and bake about 30 – 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so, until the water has evaporated and the nuts are golden brown. Cool, then store in an airtight container.

                                            Orange Candied Walnuts

 

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup orange juice

1/2 tsp. orange extract

3 cups California walnut halves and piece

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar and orange juice to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in orange extract and walnuts; stir until coating sets.
  3. Spread on a baking sheet to cool.

Sounds great- I have some walnuts leftover from Christmas to use.  This would be great.

I have a large bag of walnut that I got for baking around the holidays but due to the surgery I did not do as much baking as I had intended.  I am not a fan of just eating walnuts and I prefer pecans in baking.  I just might try making some candied walnuts to use in salads and it just might improve them enough to use them more in baking.

Nikki one of my favorite salads uses nuts. Mixed baby spring greens, canned pears and flavored walnuts. I usually use walnuts because they're cheaper than the others.

The orange candied walnuts sound great.  I just may have to try that when my husband gets back to eating regular food again.  Thanks for sharing the recipes Vicki.

 I made one of the nut recipes and I can already tell you it just might be my favorite but we'll see 'cause I still have two others to try! Maple candied walnuts are in my recipe box.  :)

They all sound great!  Since I am a tremendous "nut" fan, I guess I'll just have to try all of them.  Thanks for some great ideas to jazz up a bag of walnuts!!

I love this salad as well. When pears are on sale I use fresh sliced pears on this. Just roasting the walnuts in the oven is good too. And a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil over the top of the mixture.

 Have made all the candied walnuts now and I like the maple best with the orange walnuts second. Easy to make and keeps well in a tight fitting container.

Vicki, I never thought of using canned pears on the salad.  I don't know why it did not cross my mind but I will try pears and maybe peaches. Even in the juice they are sweet and that will go very well with bleu cheese or Feta

I have some flavored balsamic vinegars and when I am making a sald just for me I don't even use oil with them I just drizzle the vinegar on.  My favorite is a pear cinnamon and that would go great with the canned pears that Vicki suggested.
