How to fry walnuts in a pan

1. Place a shallow dry frying pan with a non-stick coating over medium heat, heat for 2 minutes – do not pour oil, as there is a lot of fat in the nuts.
2. Break each shelled walnut into halves or quarters so that they are better fried (you can put them in a plastic bag and chop with a food hammer).
3. Put the nuts on the pan, preferably in one layer for even toasting.
4. Roast the nuts for 5 minutes, stirring frequently so that the nuts roast an equal amount of time on all sides – the roasted nuts should be dark brown but not burnt.
5. Remove the pan from the burner, immediately put the nuts on the dish, otherwise they will continue to fry on the hot surface.

Tasty Facts

– The cost of shelled walnuts is about 1,000 rubles/kilogram (the average price for June 2016 in Moscow).

– Roasted walnuts can be eaten as an independent dish or as a snack, as they are very satisfying; add to salads, pasta, soups, roasts, pastries, yogurt, ice cream.

– Before roasting nuts, they must first be washed well., since nuts more often withstand spartan transportation conditions that are not compatible with purity. This applies to both shelled and inshell nuts. Washed nuts should be air dried before frying. Break the dried peeled nuts into halves or quarters for even toasting. On the inshell nuts, use a serrated knife to cut a small “x” on one side. This will make it easier to peel the shell after frying.

– To roast a large number of walnuts, you should use the oven: pour the nuts on a baking sheet and roast at a temperature of 120 degrees for 10 minutes.
