Does anyone have a good walnut recipe they would like to share? My tree has produced a bumper crop and I'd like to use them for once (rather than having a bowl out a Christmas and the rest going to waste)

walnut pesto is yum!

or a Waldorf salad?

Add them to a banana cake mix?

We love walnuts - use them loads smile

oh and you can freeze the pesto (before adding the cheese)

Coffee walnut 🍰 !! Victoria sponge recipe with instant coffee dissolved in tiny bit of boiling water and chopped walnuts. Coffee butter icing. Yum yum!

Pear, blue cheese and walnut salad. You can use figs instead of the pears too.

Great. Walnut pesto now on the menu for the weekend.

I have pears so the salad sounds good. Need to check the fig tree.

Jealous of your lovely harvest!
You're in the South of France?

I was just away to suggest chicken Waldorf salad - fond memories of this as it was the first dish we ever made in Home Ec at school - it was the first dish anyone made for years and years, I wonder if it's still on the menu/syllabus 25 years later!

I also like chopping walnuts and adding them to chic chip cookies, brownies and crumble topping

Of course - brownies! Why didn't I think of that.

I'm in western France - near La Rochelle.

Chopped and used as a coating before frying pork chops.

Added with apricots to a tagine.

Served with cubes of cheese for aperos.
