How to Harvest Black walnuts
Black walnuts should be harvested in the fall season whole and uncracked in their green hulls, in late September or early October. Mature black walnuts have a green and slightly softened outer hull.
We do not crack walnuts to separate the shells because when cracked the hulls can stain everything. This is why we use them whole.
Walnuts should have hulls at least 50% green each.
Wear gloves and old clothes to harvest them, because black walnuts contain an inky substance that will stain your clothes and skin.
Homemade Green Black Walnut Hull Tincture – Extra Strength (by Dr.Hulda Clark)
- Whole Black walnuts in the green hull (at least 50% green each) – at least 10 quarts
- Grain alcohol 50%* – enough to cover the walnuts
- Vitamin C – 1/2 teaspoon
- Large enamel or ceramic pot (not stainless, not aluminum)
- Plastic wrap or silicone stretch lid
- Glass jars or bottles
How to make green black walnut hull tincture:
- Fill the pot with uncracked, gently washed whole green black walnuts.
- Pour grain alcohol over black walnuts just until covered.
- Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon vitamin C.
- Seal the pot with a plastic wrap or silicone stretch lid.
- Let sit for 3 days.
- Strain the tincture, discard the walnuts. Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of vitamin C.
- Pour into glass bottles or jars. If the jars have a metal lid, cover the top with a plastic wrap before screwing on the lid.
- Can be kept for several years with strong potency if unopened. The tincture may darken which won’t affect the potency.
*You can use Apple cider vinegar or Food-grade vegetable glycerin instead of grain alcohol for the tincture. Soak walnuts in one of the liquids for 4-6 weeks out of direct sunlight before straining and storing. Do not use metal lids or use a plastic wrap before screwing on the lid.
*Tinctures made with alcohol will last for many years unopened. Glycerin tinctures will last for about 2-3 years, and tinctures made with apple cider vinegar will last for at least 1 year.
** To make a smaller batch use a quart glass jar, 8-12 fresh black walnuts with green hulls, approximately 2 cups alcohol/apple cider vinegar/food-grade vegetable glycerin.
