Nocino - green walnut aperitif

chyxx Jun 27, 2007 08:17 AM

I like making my own liqueurs, and just stumbled across this post in The Grinder (http://www.chow.com/grinder/3068) about making green walnut wine.

Anyone have any idea where I'd find green walnuts in Toronto?

      Thanks, but black walnut is poisonous - this climate does not enable us to grow edible walnuts! Rather than foraging for the nuts on trees, I was hoping someone knew of an italian produce importer. I know that some little italian & greek shops bring in green/fresh olives, and thought maybe there was a similar thing going on for green walnuts.

        Black walnuts aren't poisonous...just a pain to deal with. If you buy them in stores thy're actually quite expensive
