1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt

Directions:
Directions:
Boil all ingredients together on medium-low heat until mixture just begins to crystalize. This is the tricky part because it's just before it starts to burn. Careful stirring at this point. You have to judge the best time to dump it onto a buttered cookie sheet.(don't let them burn) Spread nuts into a single layer.
Bake in a 250 F oven for 10 minutes. With metal spatula, turn the nuts and bake another 10 minutes. Allow to cool, and package for gift giving or set out as munchies.
Variations:
Add two tablespoons butter midway through the cooking process. It adds a nice flavor.
Add 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon or either of them for a nice holiday flavor and scent.
