Walnut Pie - Tips and Tricks
• Nuts will be tastier and more aromatic if you pre-fry the kernels. But stored in this form is not recommended and you need to eat roasted nuts in the next few days.
• Nuts are prone to spoilage if they are not sufficiently dried. Before storing the kernel, you need to hold it in the sun, then fold it into a sealed and dark container.
• Nuts can be greased not only with an egg. Perfectly suited for this liquid honey. It is applied with a brush on the product after baking.
