Young Walnuts Tincture

Orzechówka, Nalewka z zielonego orzecha

My mum used to cure her stomach aches with this young walnuts tincture. Once I was grown up, she wanted me to use it too. I hated it, it was bitter and dark, but as we say in Poland the bitter cure heals best:) I have to agree that it really worked.

Now I’m making young walnuts tincture myself and I always have at least a small bottle in the kitchen cupboard. I add honey, so it has much better flavor, I can say it’s actually a pleasure to have such a medicine. You need to wait about a year for it to mature, so you’ll be able to try it next year.
