Ginger & Brown Sugar Glazed Walnuts

Ever since my sweet & smoky glazed almonds and smoky maple & brown sugar glazed walnuts, I’ve been contemplating a sweet and spicy glazed nut, and this time using walnuts. I’ve tried chili powder and pepper, but wanted something a bit out of the ordinary, so I decided to try using some powdered ginger. The spiciness is tempered by the caramelized sugar, just the right amount of subtle heat to complement the sweetness.

  5. Cool, breaking up any large pieces that have stuck together.
