Fiery Candied Walnuts

Fiery Candied Walnuts. Soooo good!

This is the easiest, most rewarding recipe for coating all those fresh, California nuts with goodness.  You can substitute any nut in place of the walnuts; pecans, almonds or even pistachios.  But, the walnuts have all the deep nooks and crannies that help you get the fullest flavor and the most even coverage.  

The heat in this recipe is pretty mild.  In fact, you can’t even feel the heat until the end and it mellows quickly.  Just enough to keep you coming back for more!

The best part of this recipe is that it is not greasy!  We use egg whites to help the coating stick to the nuts, making it much more healthy.  Not to mention almost guilt-free!

They make a fabulous addition to any salad or roasted vegetable dish too!
