Candied English Walnuts

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pint walnut meat, shelled
Put the sugar in a saucepan with water. Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Boil until the syrup will spin a short hair when dropped from the tines of a fork. Drop in the shelled walnut meat. When the sugar comes again to a boil, remove from the fire. Stir constantly until the syrup changes to white candy, a portion of which will adhere to the nuts. Let stand until cool and then sift off the extra sugar. This may have half as much granulated sugar added to it and boiled a second time.
