How to make walnut oil


Walnuts will start dropping quite soon, so I thought you might enjoy this; a little peek into life down here in S W France. You never know what's in a Frenchman's garden shed.



Then I drink two teaspoons of it every day with my breakfast.

    1. Many Greeks drink a small glass of good Olive Oil each morning; It's almost the only oil I use for cooking, salads, etc. I believe that Walnut Oil contains even more good properties than Olive Oil; it can only do us good.

  2. OMW that clip could be a movie from the beginning of last century! What an idyllic life you live, Cro! While we lived in North Africa, we came across a nomad in the Nubian desert and I befriended him. I have photos of oil being made from sesame seeds using a camel! Hope you're having a great weekend. Greetings, Jo (East Africa)

    1. I always used to buy small bottles of Argan Oil when in Morocco. I imagine it was made in a similar way; with Camels turning the mill.

  3. I'm guessing you buy your oil. I know you forage for walnuts but surely life is too short to go to all that bother to make the oil.

    1. Yes, I buy mine. As you say; life is too short.

  4. Love the music! When I used to do wood turning I'd sometimes use walnut oil to finish it with, it gives a great finish on wood like ash.

    1. I drink mine, but I have used it on very dry old walnut furniture.

    1. I would have the shits for a week if I drank oil from a spoon!

    2. It doesn't have that effect on ME, maybe I'm immune.

    3. I was thinking the same. I remember in Morocco all that oil went in one end and out the other pretty quickly.

    4. I'll keep haunting this blog till you ban me so do it. If you can't then you must know a little man who can.
      There are lots of intelligent artisans, I remember as you must your son is one. I looked up his web site. It's good but as you say Cornflakey.
      I want to see you shut down, if you don't promise to never refer to towel heads or be a total wanker again then send me an e-mail

      I'll wander across. I have two annoying wee dogs but they don't eat hens. I'll pop across to knock a bit of sense in before it is too late.

    5. A tad strong Adrian, as everyone is perhaps entitled to a viewpoint even if others find it offensive?

    6. Offensive, where are you at. I find Cro offensive. Nuking folk. John if he dislikes my view he can always bar me but peraps he will have to ask to find out how,
      John I don't hate him. I don't think it's his fault but I am still sailing undr colours and Cro isn;t. Smacks of Wanker to me.

    7. OK ADRIAN, let's all stand by and watch these kindly folk cutting peoples heads off, and slaughtering innocents by the thousand. When they turn up at your front door, you might think differently (but by then it'll be too late).

      As for your other incoherent ramblings, I've no idea what you're on about. Would you always check your writing before pressing the 'publish' button; thank you, and have a calm day!

    8. ADRIAN, just in case you return to this page, would you explain to everyone why you're always so angry. Those of us who live quiet, hard working, lives would be fascinated to hear what poisoned you into becoming the 'interesting' person you so obviously are.

  7. Well now I know why I buy my walnut oil from Sainsbury's! I've still got a sack full of last year's walnuts to eat. They taste wonderful but they take a fair bit of effort to shell.
