Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Crock Pot Maple Glazed Nuts

Crock Pot Maple Glazed Nuts

1 lb nuts, bigger pieces are better.  I used a combination of walnuts, cashews, and almonds.

¼ C butter or vegan substitute
¼ C maple syrup

Place the nuts in the crock pot on low.  Melt the butter and syrup together on stove or in microwave, stir well, pour over nuts, and stir until nuts are well coated.  Put the lid on the crock pot and cook on low for 1 hour.  Stir, then cook for another 30-60 minutes.  Pour onto a baking sheet and let cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.  They should stay good in dry storage for a few weeks, in the refrigerator for 2-3 months, and in the freezer for 6 months.  They’ll only last that long if you forget about them.
