Pickling green walnuts from
"Pickling green walnuts from our tree, picked them 1 month ago while still very tender. Cleaned, pierced with a skewer and placed into a 5% brine for 2 weeks. They were then sun-dried for 3 days, bottled and I poured over cider vinegar, sugar, fennel seeds and coriander- see you in 4 months. #nextchapter #popup #fermentation #mago"
