  Categories: Gifts, Nuts
       Yield: 4 cups
   1 1/2 c  Golden brown sugar (packed)

       2 tb Light corn syrup

     1/4 ts Salt
       3 c  Walnut halves; toasted
   Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper.  Combine first 5 ingredients in
   heavy large saucepan.  Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
   Cook without stirring until clip-on candy thermometer registers 240
