Here in Stockholm, Sweden, we are just on the northen limit for growing walnuts, but we do in fact have a tree in the garden of my work at a lag at the university. Yesterday I took a look at the tree and the the outer green shell of the nuts is beginning to crack, which is the first sign that harvest is approaching. They still will need a few weeks before they are ready. We have had a warm September, and I hope the ripening will continue to go well. The nuts are smaller than the ones we buy from abroad, but they really have an exquisite taste.

I love cooking with walnuts - savory and sweet - pasta sauce, dipping sauce for vegetables, baked in a cheese souffle, walnut pie etc......I always hesitate because there is nothing worse than a less than fresh nut. A rancid nut will make me sick for days . So....I will have to wait until my English walnut and Carpathian walnut trees begin to bear and fantasize in the meantime.
