Years ago Tyler and I went to a farmer’s market and we met a woman who was selling canned vegetables and various types of seasoned nuts. She had these Rosemary Walnuts out as a sample, and when I tasted them – I was hooked instantly.
They were salty, savory and just SO good.
Then she told me they were $10 for a teeny tiny jar of them that held about a handful of walnuts (no joke).
They were so good I ALMOST bought them… but then I remembered that Tyler and I can recreate pretty much anything in the kitchen – so that’s how these Healthy Rosemary Toasted Walnuts were born!
