Step by step recipe:
Peel 300 g walnuts.
If the kernels are large, chop roughly with a broad-bladed knife.
Put a frying pan on high heat without fat.
Roast nuts while stirring continuously to prevent burning, for 4 or 5 minutes.
They should brown slightly, but without smoking or burning.
Turn down the heat.
Add 3 tablespoons caster sugar, it will melt and quickly caramelize.
Continue stirring, still over low heat, until all the nuts are coated with caramel but not burned.
When nuts are well caramelized, tip out the nuts onto your working surface to stop the cooking quickly.
Stir nuts with a fork to prevent them sticking together while they cool.
Wait until they are cold before eating, they're better...
