Pickled walnuts
[Return to Topics]

Sitting here having a cold one or two not heading north to the cottage does anyone eat pickled walnuts. I can't find them in any stores . My mother [god bless her soul]used to have them at her dinner table all the time

Maybe she made her own. I found a recipe, it does not seem to complicated.


2 lbs. walnut meats
1 pt. cider vinegar
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Bring sugar, cinnamon, vinegar to boil. Add walnuts and simmer 15 minutes. Pour into glass jars (leave 1/2 inch headspace). Process 10 minutes.
"Unusual and very tasty served with game."
Makes 2 pints.

I make (according to friends, neighbors and enemies) the nastiest pickled polish sausage (and peppers from the garden) that anyone here can remember...

"McKenzies Pickled Polish" in gallon jars is pretty much legendary in western New England...

I make them look like they are packed for people that don't like 'hot sausages'...

This 'walnut' thing needs to be explained a tad better to me...

Does one only use 'walnuts' or might this work with 'butternuts' or possibly 'hickory nuts'?

Pickled sausage and pickled eggs was great when we were drinking beer in the bars but thats another story. My Ma had pickled black walnuts when we ate something a little more refined at the dinner table.

Wife an I have not heard of them. Now I have to try them.
Are they an area or regional delicacy?

My ma was English but she used to get them here in Canada.

Now, that info helps. I'll look for them next time I come over to pick-up my prescriptions.

Next time the treat's on me.
