Caramelized Walnuts

Making caramelized walnuts is pretty easy. Just place 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tbs balsamic vinegar, dash of  sea salt and dash of cayenne pepper in a large non-stick skillet.  Place over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is the consistency of thick syrup.  Stir in 2 cups walnut halves. Stir to coat about 2 to 3 minutes.  Transfer walnuts to a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat.  Let cool.  Break apart any that are stuck together.  Serve with cheese, on salads or as a snack.   Cook, Eat, Laugh…Claudia
