Smoked Ginger Beer Walnuts


Delectable morsels of pure pleasure. How did I live without these? A delicacy for sure, yet made from a common nut that most people overlook.

Makes 2 cups

1/2 c. ginger beer

1/2 c. light brown sugar

1/2 t. salt

1 T. vanilla – I used imitation

few drops of liquid smoke

2 c. walnut halves

1 scoop white sugar

In large skillet, over low heat, combine ginger beer and brown sugar. Stir till dissolved.

Add salt, vanilla, liquid smoke. Stir.

Add walnuts. Stir well to coat, then stir often without leaving stove area.

When liquid evaporates and a light film of sticky covers walnuts remove from heat. Let cool to lukewarm in skillet.

Pour a large scoop of granulated sugar over walnuts. Stir to coat evenly.

Using fingers, separate large pieces and coat each piece thoroughly, then place them all in wire mesh strainer to sift off excess sugar.

Use as toppers for dishes of choice: desserts, sandwiches, salads, cooked veggies.
