Yummy Walnuts

with 2 Comments

I had this wonderful recipe from my friend. It is easy to make. Tastes wonderful. Keeps in the fridge for weeks. A great gift to bring along to any dinner party or hide it away at home to snack on when no-one is around.


  • 200g Walnuts
  • 150ml Honey
  • 100ml Cognac
  • Water


  1. 200 g walnut, in halves or coarsely chopped or a mix of both.
  2. Place the walnuts in a bowl, pour hot water over them and leave for 5 min. Drain.
  3. Heat 150 g honey +50 ml of water in a pot.
  4. Add the walnuts and simmer at low heat for 5 min.
  5. Add 100 ml of cognac and reheat.
  6. Pour in sterilized glasses and leave to cool. Store in fridge.

Serve cold with cheese. Tastes wonderfully with a good brie and fresh baguette or with a blue cheese.

Hope you will enjoy this as much as I do.

Greetings from Birthe

    You definitely have to practice beforehand. It’s a must. Birthe, who is my mom made some when we were over during the summer and they are so nice with Gorgonzola. Yummy!

    Actually I have already bought some walnuts to give it a try.

    Let me know what you think once you have made them.

    These sound so tasty. I think that I shall make some for Christmas time.
    Well, maybe I’ll have a practice beforehand. I have to know that they are nice, myself, don’t I?
