We like roasted, salted nuts for snacking on, like almonds and macadamias, however, I was unable to find roasted walnuts in any local store. So I decided to make my own, using the technique I use for my Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe. These walnuts are incredibly tasty - the perfect balance of savory and sweet - and they are great for snacking on.
Roasted Walnuts Recipe
2 cups of shelled walnuts (one 8 oz bag)
1 tbsp + 1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Add all of the ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and stir with a spoon until all of the walnuts are coated evenly. Pour the nuts onto an ungreased, non-stick cookie sheet. Put the nuts in the oven for 1 hour total roasting time, turning them every 15 minutes. Use a spatula to turn them and lay them back out in a single layer before putting them back in the oven. At the 1 hour mark, the nuts will be done. Let them cool, store them in an airtight container in the pantry, and enjoy!
