I will have a bumper crop this year- trees are to the ground now.
Instead of letting them rot this year I plan to harvest them.
Anybody else into these?

I haven't did anything with them for years.

Even the squirrels can't clean them all up.

Alternate Eastern-European/European recipe: (confiture/jam)

You take the half done ones,
cut the green peel off,
cut the rest into halfs/quarters/eights,
dump them in a pot with lid,
water,
sugar/brown sugar/honey/maple syrup,
turn on fire/medium
start the boil,
mix from time to time,
put some lemon peel (flavour),
stop when the cold syrup is 80W90/stop-leak consistency

It is strange but flavorful and the "bitterness"/green monster taste is gone...

Edit Reason: honey, not money

you dry them,
clean them from the peel (DO NOT LET THEM GO MOLDY!)
break shell
heat a cast iron
throw them in theere
do not burn them

let cool

use in home-made/organic fudge

Now go bring some wipes for your keyboard.
Did your mouth watered?

They make a walnut harvester that looks like a Fisher-Price toy. This gizmo is a wire ball that is pushed by a stick and when this "ball" rolls over the walnuts, they get pushed into the ball for you to take them out later. My mom has one, but not sure where she got it. It does save you a lot of time.

Wow...I love walnuts. Goes great with chocolate.

I also love the wood. Makes beautiful furniture. I have a small piece of black walnut taken off some family property years ago. Sure wish I could have gotten more of it!

Used to know someone who was on a low fixed income renting out a room in a rundown small home. Nearby was a walnut crop and the folks let him go in to take lots of walnuts. When it was in season he spent most of his day, day after day collecting buckets of walnuts. He would have rows and stacks of walnuts in buckets. He would process them and sold various size bags of walnuts. Would have lawn bags of the shells he used himself for adding into the fireplace, probably wood stove to. He sure spent a lot of hours on walnuts to supplement his fixed income. Seemed happy to have income supplement he could accomplish himself right at home - didn't have a vehicle. One of the good ol boys.

When I was a tot, my grandmother used to fill up her stanless steel sink and we would crack some walnuts in half, clean them out and put lit birthday candles in the middle using the hot wax to secure them. We'd have an entire flotilla of the walnut navy; exciting when you're a kid and one turns out the lights.
