Need a last minute gift for a Christmas gathering? Run out of ideas and extra cash? This recipe for Walnuts in Syrup could save the day!

Combine: 4 c (1 bag) light brown sugar, 1/3 c corn starch, 2 T maple syrup, 3 c cold water, 1 t cinnamon and 1t molasses if you have it, but it’s not a deal breaker. Stir using a wire whisk.

Fill 10-12, 8 oz jars with half or chopped walnuts. Firmly pack the jars leaving room on the top for the lid to close. I found these cute jars in Hobby Lobby for $2.50 a jar but they were on sale %50 off.
