Vanilla Glazed Walnuts with Sea Salt

Here's a just sweet enough and slightly salty treat that is delicious and nutritious.  A jar full would make a great last minute gift, too.

I love these nuts on Greek yogurt, oatmeal and even tossed on top of a mixed green salad.  A handful with a cup of tea is a great afternoon pick me up.

Vanilla Glazed Walnuts with Sea Salt

In a medium saucepan over medium heat melt

1/4 cup Butter
1/3 cup Organic Cane Sugar

When it starts to simmer add:
3 cups of Shelled Raw Walnuts
1/8 teaspoon Ground Vanilla Beans
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Sea Salt

Stir constantly until walnuts brown slightly.  Scrape the sugar and butter mixture up from the bottom of the pan as you stir.  

Remove from heat and stir occasionally as the mixture cools.  When completely cool store in an air tight jar.
