Sweet and Spicy Walnuts

Great to put out at a party; just watch them disappear.


2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups walnuts, pieces or halves

Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


Melt butter in a medium sized skillet. Stir in cayenne, cinnamon, honey and salt, bring to a boil. Add nuts. Continue cooking and stirring until liquid is mostly gone and nuts are well coated and begin to brown, about 6-7 minutes. Pour onto a large sheet of foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Let cool, breaking nuts into bite-sized pieces. (Allow pan to sit in hot soapy water to clean. The candied honey will wash right out.)
