Glazed Walnuts with Maple Syrup

Glazed Walnuts with Maple Syrup

The key to glazing walnuts is resisting the urge to over-glaze them. Too much sweetness and you lose the earthiness that makes walnuts so special.  In Trader Joe’s Glazed Walnuts with Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup, we didn't over-glaze, and we created something that tastes celebratory, worthy of holiday festivities.

Our supplier, in Northern California, begins with freshly harvested California walnuts. The nuts are shelled and halved, then glazed with a finely-tuned blend of cane sugar and our very own Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup. The syrup, from the Great Lakes region of the American Midwest, is aged in authentic white oak barrels previously used for aging Kentucky Bourbon. The barrels impart their charred oak sugar characteristics to the syrup, and the syrup in turn lends its sweet-smoky flavors to the earthy, tannic qualities of the Walnuts. These flavors were meant to be together – on salads, with cheese, in baked goods... We’re selling Glazed Walnuts with Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup in an eight ounce zipper bag for $3.99, for as long as we can keep them in stock. They’re in our nut and dried fruit section.
