Candied walnuts keep well and make ideal gifts.


  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups Diamond walnut halves or pieces


Boil sugar, salt, honey and water together, stirring often, to 242 degrees on candy thermometer. This will be the firm-soft ball stage. Remove from heat and add vanilla and walnuts. Stir until creamy. Turn out on waxed paper; seperate walnuts, using two forks.
