Candied Green Walnuts (Noci Verde Candite)
Green walnuts are candied in sugar, cut into succulent quarters, and preserved in a thick, rich syrup fragrant with vanilla bean. The sweetness of the syrup perfectly balances the tannic flavor of the green walnuts. This special product has a pleasingly delicate taste with an aroma characteristic of fresh green fruit.
How to use
Candied green walnuts are simply stunning straight out of the jar—spoon over vanilla gelato, add as a finishing touch to bowls of rice pudding or slice and use as a garnish for cocktails. This Venetian specialty also makes a beautiful addition to cheese plates. Try them alongside soft-ripened cheeses like La Tur or Robiola di Langa or mild milky blue cheeses like Gorgonzola Dolcelatte.
