36664Re: nocino time
- Aug 4, 2006Nocino, I think (please correct me Micio if I'm wrong)is derived from
the Italian verb nuocere, which means to harm, to damage, and 'ino' a
suffux that imples "a little".
So, nocino literally means to harm a little.
Green walnuts hulls, and not the older black ones, as well as cloves,
have a proven property for killing intestinal flukes and suppressing
parasitic bacteria and fungi (yeasts) and also many kinds of
pathogens which we coincidentally ingest in the course of normal
gastro-fare. In becomes imperative that on a cyclic basis, we do a
detoxing, or killing of these "little" entities from our bodies for
robust health. Nocino will aid in the aspect. Italy's high
percentage of centenarians may be in part due to nocino!
Here's my nocino recipe:
30 green walnuts (collected on the 25th of June, blond virgin
48 oz of your best and cleanest shine
1 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon whole cloves
rind of 1 lemon
1 cup water (spring or well)
Cut the 30 green walnuts with the kernel into 4 parts and put them in
a large jar, add the alcohol and half of the sugar, spices and lemon
rind. Place the jar in a sunny window tightly covered for a few
months. Filter and add sugar syrup made from 1 cup of water and the
rest of sugar. Store in the cellar for a year.
Serve cold after a meal.
Viva nocino e giovani vergini biondi!
