    I just wanted to thank everyone who participated in this thread. Just made a batch of maple almonds, and WOW are they good. And so easy! These will make great little gift bags.

    Thanks again!

    Great thread.. saw it yesterday and had to make up some maple cashews today. Love the aroma as the maple syrup is approaching the 240 mark.

    Yeah, it's a great way to get that special maple smell back in the house in the off season. I'll add a tip for anyone who is making a variety of nuts. I make my first batch with a hard nut like an almond, then I'll make the meatier/softer nuts. The first batch takes a little longer to crystalize and the nuts take a bit of a beating. After that, the mixing bowl seems to be primed and the taffy crystalizes faster, so it takes less stirring, so the nuts don't break up as much. I've found when I start with a pecan or walnut first, I ended up stirring longer and breaking more nuts into pieces.

    Yes they can be frozen. I've frozen them and when I want some I just pull some out of the freezer and eat them right from the freezer. Don't have to defrost them.
