Georgian Green Walnut Preserves in Syrup

The green walnut preserve is similar to the Georgian fig preserves where it is a sweet jam, jelly, or fruit preserve-like product. The walnuts are boiled whole in sugary syrup when they are still young and tender.

About Walnut Preserves

Georgian walnut preserves are a delicious way to enjoy the unique flavor of Georgian walnuts. The walnuts are first peeled when the walnuts are still tender. Next, they are cooked in syrup made from sugar and water. Once the green walnuts are cooked, they are placed in sterilized jars and sealed. The jars can then be stored in a cool, dark place for up to six months. When ready to eat, the preserves can be enjoyed on their own or used as a spread for toast or crackers. Walnut preserves are a delightful Georgian food that captures the essence of this special nut.

Include Georgian Walnut Preserves in Your Next Dish

Walnut preserves are a versatile ingredient that can be used in both sweet and savory Georgian dishes. When cooking with walnut preserves, it is important to remember that a little goes a long way. Cook with shkmeruli, chicken tabaka, or lobio to add a warm nutty flavor to your favorite Georgian cuisine. The bold flavor of walnuts can easily overpower other ingredients, so it is best to start with a small amount and add more to taste.

Walnut preserves can be used as a glaze for roasted meats or vegetables, or as a filling for pies or pastries. They also pair well with cheese, making them an ideal ingredient for savory tartines or Crostini. When using walnut preserves in baking, it is important to pair them with complementary flavors such as chocolate, coffee, or orange. For a quick and easy dessert, try spreading walnut preserves on top of pound cake or pancakes. Whatever Georgian recipe you choose to make, your guests are sure to be impressed by your creative use of this delicious ingredient.
