Maple Glazed Walnuts
Looking for even more ways to use maple syrup as an all-natural sweetener? Check out this recipe for maple glazed walnuts. Nuts contain lots of healthy fats, and syrup has minerals and natural anti-oxidants, so you can eat these without feeling guilty, even if you're on a gluten-free diet. These are a tasty treat for a party, a gift, or just to keep around the house (not that you'll keep them around the house for very long).
2-1/2 cups shelled walnuts
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
Put walnuts into a pan on medium heat and pour the maple syrup over. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until walnuts are glazed and golden, syrup is caramelized and fully absorbed, for about 5 minutes.
Turn glazed walnuts out onto a rack and allow to cool and dry. Store in a tightly-closed container. Variations: add a pinch of salt, or other seasonings as desired.
