DESCRIPTION

While we are used to rosemary paired with roasted chicken or glazed ham, the mix of flavors in this Herbed Walnuts recipe will give you a similar taste without the hassle in the kitchen. Vary the recipe by using fresh oregano, sage or thyme in place of the fresh rosemary. Package the walnuts in a mason jar tied with a gold ribbon.
