Candied Walnuts


Walnuts and sugar.  That's about it.  A simple recipe to make candied walnuts and these are quite a treat.  You can toss them into your salad or straight into your mouth.  I'd prefer the latter .... crunch, crunch!  But remember to act fast as once the walnuts are coated with the melted sugar, they tend to cool quickly and will stick together real fast.






Recipe for Candied Walnuts  (adapted from 'here')


    Ingredients

    • 240 gm walnut halves
    • 200 gm granulated sugar
    Method
    1. Heat up the walnut halves in a non-stick pan on medium heat.
    2. Add in the sugar, mix well and stir frequently to prevent the mixture from burning.
    3. Once the sugar starts to melt, keep stirring till the sugar is melted and nuts are coated. Keep stirring and turning so as to fully coat the nuts with the melted sugar.
    4. Immediately transfer the nuts to a sheet of parchment paper and quickly separate the nuts with 2 spatulas, otherwise the nuts will stick together.  (You must move quickly from the time the nuts are coated until they're separated out on the parchment paper).
    5. Keep them in an airtight container or cookie jar.

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
