Prickly Pear

Serves/Makes:4 cups

  • 4 cups (950 ml) walnuts
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • water, boiling
  • salt
  • oil for deep frying, heated to 350 degrees
  • Place walnuts in boiling water, bring to a boil once again and continue boiling for one minute.
  • Transfer walnuts to a colander and rinse with hot water and drain well.
  • Put boiled/drained walnuts in large bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar.
  • Stir for about five minutes or until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Heat oil in deep fryer to about 350 degrees (175 C.).
  • Add walnuts and fry for about 5 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • Remove and drain on brown paper (paper towels will stick) that has been placed over several layers of newspaper.
  • LIGHTLY sprinkle walnuts with salt and let cool.
  • Keep in a covered (air tight) container.
These keep well but won't be around long enough for you to find out! I make these at Christmas and give them as gifts--this past year I made 24 cups! I had barely enough to go around! People feel slighted if they don't receive any. Enjoy!
