Trees Bearing Gifts

Image result for black walnut tree

My shady backyard hosts a small number of  Black Walnut trees. A mighty surplus of black walnuts kept me quite busy for a month- gathering, setting up a drying table, preparing them to dry, and ultimately giving away bags of them.

It is easy to identify a black walnut lover- their hands are stained as dark as furniture! I know this from personal experience- I was anxious that the stain would not be gone  from my hands before Thanksgiving.

I plan to do a little baking for Christmas, and the walnuts from my own trees will be a special treat.
