RECIPE: Oranged Walnuts

jennOctober 28, 2004

My grandmother made these every year.

1-1/2 cups sugar

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup water

1 tsp. grated orange peel

2 cups walnut halves

Combine sugar, OJ, water; cook to softball stage (234°).

Remove from heat; add walnuts and orange peel. Mix until syrup becomes cloudy and hard to stir.

Quickly turn out onto waxed paper or buttered cookie sheet. Separate into clusters with two forks.

Makes 3 cups.

Think this would work with pecans? It sounds great.

Sure, why not? :-) I can still "taste" them and I haven't had them in many years. I remember them from my childhood.

If you try them with pecans, I'd like to know what you think.

Mmmm sounds easy and wonderful.
I'm going to make them as tidbits at my Cookie Exchange party on Dec 10.
I always have pecans in the freezer...But I need to get walnuts for baking too.
Maybe even almonds.
Mmmmmmmmmm I love nuts....

Jen,
Thought I'd let you know that I made these last week, they're all gone now, and they are getting rave reviews. Thanks for sharing the recipe. These are going on my "to make every year" Christmas cookie list.

Oh Janet, I'm so happy to hear that. I was just thinking about them again this morning. My grandmother made them many years ago and I'm thrilled to know you like them that much. Thanks for letting me know. I'll pass that on to my mother. :-)
