A friends’ garden, a foragers delight, strewn with walnuts from next doors’ tree.

I find fresh walnuts to be less bitter, softer and have a slightly different taste to shop bought walnuts. Perhaps that’s because I’m cracking and eating them as I go rather than taking the time to cure, crack, soak and store my single carrier bag full of walnuts.

I’d like to say I did something amazing with them but dropping a handful of walnuts into my muesli has been the extent of my creativity!

    Ooh, lucky you! That’s inspired me to ask on Freegle and see if anyone has any spare. How do you preserve them, Nic?

    Hi Lynne, good to hear from you. If you click on the cure, crack, store link there’s a step by step guide from Laurie about preserving them. To be honest I don’t have enough to do anything more than dry them out on a tray so they don’t go mouldy and crack them as I eat them!
