The Green Walnut Syrup - sciroppo di noci verdi - is made with sugar, macerated green walnuts and natural vanilla bean. The result is a rich syrup black as ink and thick as old balsamic vinegar. One of Italy’s most famous liqueurs, called Nocino, is made from green walnuts, sugar and spices that are left to macerate in alcohol for more than 45 days. The result is a dark black syrupy elixir, beloved by many Italians as a digestif or after-dinner drink. The Valier family decided to create a similar product but without the use of alcohol, and in 2010 they released their unique Green Walnut Syrup. The tannic, aromatic liquid is excellent over vanilla ice cream, shaved ice, panna cotta or pudding.
