10 walnuts (best if you can get local ones still in their shell)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp water
A small grating fresh nutmeg
1-2 tsp honey (optional)
� Shell the walnuts, put them into a bowl, cover with water and leave to soak for 24 hours.
� Drain and rinse the walnuts. Pop them into a processor (or mini processor as I do) with the cinnamon and 2 tbsp of the water. Process well. Open the processor, scrape down the sides and add the last tbsp of water. Process again � keep going till it�s really smooth.
� Take the blade out of the processor and spoon in the optional honey. Grate nutmeg in to taste and stir well.
I always soak my walnuts (the colour of the soak water after will explain to you why!), but it is possible to make this spread without pre-soaking � you�d need to add more water at the processing stage to make a smooth paste.
