Candied Walnuts

These crunchy, easy-to-make snacks are enjoyable on their own or can be used as a garnish or tossed in salads.
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Spread walnuts in a single layer over a baking tray. Roast for about 10 minutes until the nuts start to turn brown.

  2. Mix sugar, inverted sugar syrup, water, and salt in a heavy sauce pan. Stir over low-medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring it to a boil until the syrup reaches the soft-ball stage about 113C/236F.

  3. Remove from heat and immediately stir in vanilla. Add in roasted walnuts and stir to coat well. Turn out on parchment paper and separate the walnuts with a fork. Cool completely before store in airtight containers.

What is inverted sugar syrup? No matter candied nuts are really irresistible. They'd be magic on a little French Vanilla ice cream...

@Happy cook, Hornsfan, 5 Star Foodie, Lavanya, Reeni♥
Thank you for you guys' incredible support. :bd
@The Duo Dishes
Inverted sugar syrup is a sucrose-based syrup.
It is created by heating granulated sugar with acid (cream of tartar or fresh lemon juice for example). This splits the sucrose/蔗糖 into its two components: glucose/葡萄糖 and fructose/果糖, thereby reducing the size of the sugar crystals.
Golden Syrup can be used instead.
