Frosted Walnuts

Submitted by: Mary D

Recipe Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream (regular or low fat)
4 cups chopped <a href="/nuts/walnuts/english-no-shell.html">walnuts</a>

Cooking Directions:
1.  Bring sugar, vanilla, and sour cream to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring, to soft ball stage - about 237 degrees (this usually takes 5-15 minutes, depending on the barometric pressure, the relative humidity, the phase of the moon - I have no idea why it varies so much)

2.  Remove from heat and add nuts, all at once. Stir in the nuts until they are evenly coated. The mixture should soon start to stiffen and to loose its gloss (sometimes this happens immediately, other times it takes a minute or two).

3.  Quickly turn it out onto a sheet of parchment paper or a greased baking sheet. Cool. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

4.  Variation: Should work with any kind of nuts, but so far, we like it best with walnuts.

Our raw English walnuts arrive out of the shell, which means they're ready for you to enjoy right away. Snack on them out of the bag, or toss them in salads and baked goods for more protein, fiber and omega-3s.
