In the midst of December indulgences they couldn’t have been better timed, or more gratefully received.

Christmas Flavours

For many, Christmas isn’t Christmas without a Pickled Walnut but if this is your first foray into the Pickled Walnut Club, then we suggest that you use them to accompany Christmas cheeses or crack open a  jar on Boxing Day as they go really well with cold meats too.
