Candied Walnuts

These are a Chinese food delicacy of marinated Walnuts, nice and sweet with a hint of salt from the soy which gives it a little colour as well. They are quite a unique flavour and very morish, so if you are dieting …. just don’t go there!

What you need

250g Walnuts
220ml honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Caster sugar

The process

Combine the honey, lemon juice, and soy sauce together in a bowl and then add the walnuts. Mix them well and allow to marinate for about 2 hours.

Drain the walnuts and discard the remaining sauce.

Cover a plate liberally with caster sugar and coat the walnuts generously by tossing them around.

Put about 3cm of cooking oil in a pot and heat to medium, them with tongs add the coated walnuts and deep fry until just golden.

Remove and drain on paper towel.
