Walnut butter made with Vin de Noix to celebrate St. John the Baptist day, the traditional day for foraging green walnuts. The combination of walnuts, sugar, wine, and thyme make it almost a confection, perfect by the spoonful.
Today is the day to start foraging for green walnuts. Vin de Noix is delicious on its own, or with your favorite walnut dish.
