Delightful walnuts, rich in buttery flavor are sugar coated and deep fried to caramelize them. Ideal as toppings for ice cream or as accompaniments for many superb Chinese recipes. Delectable.


Sugared Walnuts
 
Author:
Recipe type: Garnishes
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 Cups walnut halves, raw
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Cup peanut oil
Instructions
  1. Blanch walnut halves for 30 seconds; drain. While still slightly damp, dredge nuts in sugar. Spread them out to dry. Heat oil in wok to about 200 degrees C, or until a test walnut browns in about 30 seconds.
  2. If walnut is too dark, oil is too hot. Deep-fry nuts, 1/2 cup at a time. Sugar will melt and form a thin, hard outer shell.
  3. Cool and cover until ready to serve.
