Every day is different

Finding objects out in the wild is wonderful. Most days I am uplifted by collecting interesting leaves, feathers or mossy sticks. Very occasionally I get REALLY lucky, like yesterday:

Just got to work out how to clean it up.

Walnuts in honey

I first bought a jar of this in the Thursday morning market in Villefranche de Rouergue in the Aveyron. It was VASTLY expensive for the size of the jar (€4.50, jar = small). However, it was very delicious and it didn't take long to work out that I could easily make it myself.
Recipe and method: break the walnuts up to the size you want (you can use them whole) and put them in a sterilised jar. Pour some honey through the walnuts until the jar is full, then pop on the lid. This is fabulous with fromage frais/greek yoghurt and fresh fruit for breakfast.
