Nobelhart & Schmutzig | Black Walnuts
Size: 220 ml or 130 gram drained per glass
Ingredients: Green walnuts, water, sugar, verjus, salt
Vivian Böllersen provides us with not-yet-ripe, green walnuts which are harvested in late May/early June. After sorting through and halving the nuts, we water them daily to wash out tannins and bitter compounds. Over the course of this process, the walnuts slowly begin to oxidate and eventually turn black. They are then preserved in water, sugar, verjus and salt – we don’t add any spices to give room to their delicate taste profile.
