Walnuts in forest dark honey
Last night I made a second jar but this time I added in few pieces of orange skin with walnuts. This is a very simple task, all that is required is to pack well some small glass jar full with walnuts and then to pour honey in. The honey leaked in between the walnuts very slowly (air bubbles take their time to travel towards the top through thick honey) so it’s better doing so in stages instead of standing there and wait. At the end close the lid tight and that’s it.
Walnuts dipped in honey are so yummy
The one on the picture I made in my mother’s place while I was in Europe last time. She always keeps at home this almost black color honey European bees collect in their local pine forests. That forest honey tastes so great and is also very aromatic. The guy who keeps the bees does not heat up his honey nor process it in any way.
Apart filling up the jar almost to the top and closing it with lid, there is another little trick to it. The trick is not to touch your jar for at least one month. Don’t open it too early! The longer you keep it closed the better the honey flavor soaks into the walnuts, AND, the walnuts’ flavor also gets beautifully absorbed by the honey!
I must admit I was lucky with this jar; after I made it I hid it in basement pantry so no one can find it – and then I forgot about it. Sometimes is good to be too busy. I can tell you, when I found it after 3 or 4 months I was tempted not to mention anything about it to any one. But I did share it. This time I will eat only, with teaspoon, one walnut per day. And each month I will make one jar like this, and try extending the time to keep it one year old before first time opening.

Walnuts in dark forest honey ?
By the way, I was caught by surprise with the title of this article “Walnuts in forest dark honey.” Initially I had it written as “Walnuts in dark forest honey.” Then after proofreading I had a though, wow, it sounded more like I had obtained the honey from some deep dark and spooky forest which contains huge flowers 1 meter in diameter. Who knows where everywhere the bees fly?
