Nocino

Making Nocino, Italian walnut liquor, usually this is made on June 24th, St John’s day.

But as you can see these walnuts got a little large very early.

The alcohol turns bright green from the walnuts, as do your hands. Cut the walnuts in quarters and soak in alcohol for a few weeks or longer depending on the strength you want.

I add a few flavor elements but pure walnuts are fine. After they are finished extracting, drain and mix the liquid with simple syrup to taste. Simple syrup is usually a 1:1 combination, one cup sugar and one cup water.

Nocino is an acquired taste but wonderful. Enjoy. I will post a picture of the finished product in a couple of months.

 

 

Cut the walnuts into quarters and add to a very clean mason jar. Fill with Everclear liquor.

 

 

Cut walnuts with seasoning, cinnamon, lemon, and coffee beans.
