*Curried Walnuts* (GF)

I didn't have a whole lot left from our picnic to take a photo of, but here are the curried walnuts.  Unusual.  I remember making them in Burlington, Ontario once and an Indian friend (an opthamologist but a pastor today in Toronto) and his wife came over to visit us and he loved it.  He loves curry plus he used to make his own curry blend for his son's restaurant.


These are unusual, and people often want to know how they were made.

1 tsp curry powder (5 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
2 cups walnut halves (500 mL)
1 tbsp butter (15 mL)

 In small bowl, combine curry powder and salt.  Set aside. In medium saucepan in water, boil walnuts 3 minutes; drain.  Lightly grease baking sheet; spread walnuts out on it.  Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 15 minutes, or until just beginning to turn brown.  Remove from oven and immediately stir in 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter until walnuts are coated.  Sprinkle with curry mixture and stir.  Store in bowl uncovered.
