A year ago today, Simone and I picked a bunch of walnuts to make Nocino. All I'd read said that you should wait 3 or even 6 months to taste it, and around Christmas time I tasted it and found it a bit disappointing. It was kind of bitter, sweet enough, but just not very tasty.
In the past I'd made some lemon liqueur that tasted bitter and generally unpleasant. A year later it ended up very smooth and bright. Turns out, age can help liqueur a lot. So I put the liqueur back in the cupboard and waited.
A few weeks ago I took a sip and it was pretty good! I think it'll be awesome over some ice cream.
If you stop by the house, you should have a taste.
Simone and I are hanging out together this weekend. She was very tired from a day in the sun and water. I'm kicking back, having a cool, Jalepeno vodka mojito, enjoying the best movie of all time: The Shawshank Redemption.
