Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Candied Orange Walnuts

These not only make a great snack, they add a special touch to side dishes like green beans or sweet potatoes. It is really important to use freshly squeezed orange juice for the best flavor and to make sure the orange syrup is the right consistancy. These walnuts also make a great gift and store well in a tightly sealed container.

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon orange extract
4 cups walnut halves

Bring the sugar and juice to a rolling boil and boil for one minute. Add the extract and walnuts. Stir well until evenly coated. Pour the walnuts onto wax paper and let sit until dried to the touch before packaging or serving.

Makes about 5 cups nuts.
