Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g butter
150g brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
300g walnut halves
1 egg white

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Place the butter and sugar in a frying pan and heat gently until the butter has melted. Increase the heat and cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes until the sugar has dissolved to make a caramel. Stir in the cayenne pepper, then fold in the walnuts. Remove from the heat.
  3. Whisk the egg white to stiff peaks, then fold gently into the walnut mixture until the nuts are evenly coated. Transfer the walnuts to the prepared baking tray and cook for 15–20 minutes, stirring every 6–8 minutes, until the nuts are golden and crisp. Leave to cool before serving with drinks, on a cheeseboard or to add crunch to salads.
