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!
