In laws with a walnut tree in their backyard. They have more each year than they know what to do with it. GF usually bakes a couple of apple pies with walnuts, and also store a few wicker baskets full in the attic. If you have any ideas for recepy's that need a lot of them, I'm all ears.
Incidentally, they also have a massive cherry tree, which always got plucked by crows before the harvest was ready. This year will be the first to try and save a few baskets by shooting a couple and hanging them in that tree to see if that helps.
