  • 2 cups Walnut Pick only pretty looking walnut halves
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 Lime juice or lemon juice


  • In a heavy bottom pan add a cup of water and sugar. Simply swirl the pan until the sugar dissolves.
  • Allow this to come to a rolling boil. The lime juice and the walnut give it a quick stir. Cover it and allow it to cook on high flame. Open and check in between.
  • Boil it for 5 minutes.
  • When the sugar begins to change keep an eye (see notes). Remove from heat immediately,
  • Carefully place each walnut on the wax paper separately with a fork. Work fast else you will end up with clusters not singles.
  • Allow it to cool down completely before toughing the walnut. After 10 minutes or so slowly remove the walnut. If there is excess sugar on the side simply snap it off.
  • Walnut candied can be used as a snack,use in cheese boards, in ice cream, as cake topping, praline on desserts
