The Walnut Harvest



I harvested our walnuts in mid-October. It was a bumper crop this year and now they have been drying in our pantry for a while they are ready to use. This means shelling them first, which I will do in batches, then put the nuts in the freezer in 200g lots.

There's always one...

Soon I'll be making:

Pear and Walnut Cake

Rugelach

Savoury Goats Cheese and Walnut Biscotti

Coffee and Walnut Cake

Beetroot and Walnut Pesto

Anything else you can think of?

You have to have your eye in to spot them on the ground.

Also ready for filtering and bottling is this year's batch of walnut liqueur

Tuesday's Training Tales.

I know - it's Wednesday, but I did kind of lose track of the days

Last week was not our finest - we both suffered from winter starting and general life stuff. However, we managed 11km of walking and 900 metres of swimming. Not spectacular, but it's something.

Bad news - the bathroom scales died and we bought a new set THAT TELL LIES! The same lies as the scales in the Dr's surgery. Hey ho...
