ISO help making glazed(?) walnuts

We just returned from our big Mediterranean cruise/20th anniversary celebration, and on the cruise ship the dining room served, every evening, a plate of assorted cheeses & fruit with a few little slices of date bread and some lightly sweetened walnuts. Some people had them as an appetizer, some had them as a dessert. Either way, they were great. Does anyone know how to go about making glazed walnuts? I've never done anything like that, but would like to try it at home.

Sugar, honey, or maple sugar glazed?

BlueCat, you might want to take a look at this recipe I found on Epicurious. It's for a spiced-style nut, but I think you could adapt it to the walnuts you enjoyed. Check it out.

Spiced Walnuts

1 1/2 lbs walnuts or pecans
1 1/2 C water
2 c granulated sugar
Couple (or 3 or 4) shakes Tabasco or cayenne pepper

Bring water & sugar to a boil to dissolve sugar
Add nuts & stir or let sit 1-2 min. With a slotted spoon, put nuts on a sheet pan which has been sprayed with cooking spray. (Use a sheet large enough for just one layer of nuts)

Bake at 350° for 15 – 30 min, stirring every 5 min., being careful not to burn. (Bake just till dry). The length of time will vary with almost every batch of nuts.

Be careful, these are addictive!! ;)
