you have to have green walnuts which are still very soft. Cut all the green outside off until you have this white, soft nut. Put it immediately into water with some lemon juice, otherwise they turn brown. Cook a syrup with abt 500 ml water, 150 g sugar, juice of 2 lemons, 1vanilla bean. Cook for abt 10 min, put the nuts into the liquid, cook until soft (abt 10 min) fill into prepared jars, wait 6 month ;-)
Hmmm - should be some immature walnuts popping up this time of year. Do you still get black hands cutting off the green?
