Christmas Calendar 2016 - Christmas pickled nuts

These pickled nuts are great served together with cheese. The Christmas part of these pickled nuts is the use of cinnamon and orange.

I have found the original recipe in the weekly magazin Sndag (issue 51/2013). However, I have made various modifications, so using the ingredients available in my kitchen instead of buying the actual ingredients mentioned in the recipe.

Christmas pickled nuts: - 3 smaller glasses
  • 1 organic orange - zest and juice
  • 100 g walnuts
  • 50 g almonds
  • 3 dl water
  • 1 tablespoon apple vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  1. Start by boiling the nuts in the water for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Drain the water from the nuts.
  3. Add orange juice, orange zest, apple vinegar, honey and cinnamon into a cooking pot, and bring them to the boil.
  4. Add in the boiled nuts. Let the nuts simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Prepare the storage glasses by adding boiling water to them first.
  6. Divide the nuts between the glasses and divide as well the liquid between the storage glasses.
  7. Store the pickled nuts in the refrigerator.
  8. Serve together with cheese.
