Title: Message
Doreen, I'm collecting editor for the next issue of Pomona.  Would you have instructions for making the wine that you would be willing to share with its readers? -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Zone 4b)

I don't know about candied walnuts, but green walnuts make a fantastic nut wine that is much like a finely crafted port.  It's the tannin in the nuts and hulls that produces the deep color and flavor. People in the Alsace-Lorraine area of France-Germany make this wine in summer, age it until about October and decant it then.  I've made it with green pecans and hulls and can attest to the fabulous taste.
