How to Make Pickled Walnuts
Pickled walnuts are a great addition to a Ploughman's lunch or with a cheese platter. You will need access to a walnut tree or a walnut grower in order to obtain green nuts.
Fresh walnuts from the tree, without shells formed; amount up to your choice
Brine - enough to cover the walnuts (1/2 cup salt for every 5 cups water)
Spice vinegar (refrigerated) - recipe provided below
Gather the nuts before their shells form.It is important to test for the formation of a shell by pricking each walnut with a needle. Discard any walnuts on which the needle detects shell formation. It is useful to know that the shell always forms at the end that is opposite to the stalk.
Prick the nuts that are free of shell.Place these in brine for 3 days.
Drain the nuts.Place in fresh brine and leave for 7 days.
Drain after the week has passed.Place the nuts on fruit drying racks or cake cooling racks. Leave for 24 hours to dry and blacken.
Clean and sterilise storage jar(s).Fill the jar(s) with walnuts. Pour in spiced vinegar over the walnuts (see recipe next).
Seal the jar(s).Allow the walnuts to marinate for at least one month.

QuestionShould the walnuts be pickled whole or cut in half?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThe walnuts should generally be pickled whole, but it's really about your personal preference.Thanks!
QuestionDo I have to boil the vinegar first?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, but boiling the vinegar on high before adding the walnuts will give you a higher chance of the walnuts getting burnt. Try putting the stove on low for 5 to 10 min. then add the walnuts.Thanks!
QuestionWhere can I go to get fresh walnuts if I don't have a tree?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou should be able to find fresh walnuts at your local supermarket, or at a farmer's market if you have one in your area.Thanks!
