       Yield: 4 servings
  
       4 c  Water
       2 c  Walnuts
       6 tb Sugar
     1/4 ts Salt

   Traditionally, these crispy sweet walnuts are served
   as a “starter” appetizer to a Chinese banquet dinner
   to tease the palate before the first entree. They make
   wonderful snacks or a perfect cocktail food.
   
   PREHEAT OVEN TO 325F. Bring a pot of water to a full
   boil. Add walnuts, remove from heat and set aside for
   3 minutes. Drain walnuts and pat dry. While nuts are
   hot, toss evenly with sugar and salt to coat. Add oil
   and mix thoroughly. Spread nuts in 1 layer on a
   foil-lined baking sheet. Allow the nuts to dry for an
   hour or until their surface is thoroughly dry. Bake,
   stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until
   golden brown. Remove and serve. Store in an airtight
   container. They will keep for several weeks. Makes 2
   Cups
