Spiced Walnuts

Grease a baking sheet and set aside.


Bring 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves and 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a non-aluminum or heavy saucepan.


Cook until a candy thermometer inserted in the mixture reaches 236 degrees. Remove the pan from the heat and add 2 cups of walnut halves or large pieces. Stir until the mixture is creamy and the nuts are well-coated.


Turn the nuts onto a greased baking sheet and separate using 2 forks.
