Personal Notes:
Nancy Crouse brought these walnuts to a rug hookers' holiday party in Tunkhannock PA in 2003. No one could stop eating them. She generously shared the recipe which I reproduce here exactly as she wrote it. I've been making at least a dozen batches every Holiday Season since then; they are packed up & given as eagerly anticipated gifts to everyone from the dog sitter to the bank teller & car repair people, not to mention our grandchildren. They're our version of sugar plums; I'm pretty sick of making them by Christmas, but leap right back in the following year. Kim pitches in to help with production.
