Sugared English Walnuts

I am looking for a recipe for sugared English Walnuts or Pecans. I do believe you boil the ingredients together and pour over the nut meats and it hardens and makes them crunchy. This is a sweet coating.

1 egg white

1 cup sugar

1 Tbsp. water

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 pound nuts  walnuts, pecans etc.

1 tsp. salt

In a large bowl, beat egg white and water together until frothy. Add nuts and stir until completely coated.

In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix with nuts, coating completely.

Spread nuts in a foil lined jelly-roll pan. Bake in preheated 250° oven for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes or nuts will stick to pan. Cool.



The streets of New York are peppered with Nuts 4 Nuts vendors selling freshly candied nuts that you can smell a block away. The nuts are candied right there in the carts in a large metal bowl over a heating element. In about four minutes, you can make this authentic New York treat, using a few ingredients.

2 Tbsp. water

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups raw nuts -- almonds, peanuts, walnuts or cashews, not roasted

Bring water and sugar to a boil in medium saucepan (works best in a pan that is not non-stick) over medium heat.

When sugar has dissolved, add the nuts. Stir occasionally to coat the nuts. At about the 2-minute mark, stir vigorously. In about a minute the water will evaporate and the sugar will crystallize on the nuts. Turn off heat immediately when all of sugar has crystallized but keep stirring. The sugar should begin to caramelize and turn light brown on the nuts. Pour nuts onto plate to cool.

Makes 1 1/2 cups.

You can add other ingredients for flavor variations. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the pan or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
