10 walnuts (best if you can get local ones still in their shell)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp water
A small grating fresh nutmeg
1-2 tsp honey (optional)
â€¢ Shell the walnuts, put them into a bowl, cover with water and leave to soak for 24 hours.
â€¢ Drain and rinse the walnuts. Pop them into a processor (or mini processor as I do) with the cinnamon and 2 tbsp of the water. Process well. Open the processor, scrape down the sides and add the last tbsp of water. Process again â€“ keep going till itâ€™s really smooth.
â€¢ Take the blade out of the processor and spoon in the optional honey. Grate nutmeg in to taste and stir well.
I always soak my walnuts (the colour of the soak water after will explain to you why!), but it is possible to make this spread without pre-soaking â€“ youâ€™d need to add more water at the processing stage to make a smooth paste.
Pathlesstrodden's ThoughtsBy pathlesstrodden
I'm in Tuscany, Italy and here walnuts and pears are in season at the same time...Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s because they taste amazing together!
To celebrate hereâ€™s a really simple walnut spread I came up with that goes SO well on sliced up pears. Itâ€™s really easy to make, and a smooth and creamy taste experience!
