Walnut Ink 2022

Walnut Ink 2022

A gift! Last fall my friend James dropped off a bucket of walnuts!

After sitting through the winter and drying out. I was ready to cook. My set up was outside on an early April day.

They cooked on a low temperature for 6hrs. Then sat overnight.

Looks like it is ready.

First strain through a metal strainer, the again through a finer mesh strainer.

I strained it again through cheese cloth.

Definitely need to do this in a place where you can make a mess.
