  1. I love green walnut preserves. You're talking about the stuff where the nut is whole, packed in syrup, yes? Good God is that stuff amazing. It's my second favorite preserve (sour cherry is first and watermelon rind third.)

    Green walnuts are used for flavoring homemade brandies, too. Good stuff.

    I've not had eggplant jam, but since it's so porous, I could see how it would absorb the sweet so well and turn into a lovely jam.

    Send some my way! :)

    1. I just returned from Israel where I had eggplant, onion and walnut jam. OMG it was incredible as was the baby carrot jam. I'm looking for a recipe. It might be a Yemeni recipe. Lisa
