HARVEST TIME, walnut cake



This is the time of apple and grappe picking here in France. Well i know what apple picking is, because i didit when i was a student and i can tell you it's hard work! early in the morning in the fog of September , you have to stay up a ladder for hours, going down when your basket is full and up again! but when the weather is cooler is nice to have a picnic for lunch! but here in Normandy, the weather becomes wet at this time of year and the rain maybe your companion for days and that's not fun.But when you are a student, it's nice to get money before a new year of study!
This is what i learn at school when i was little, i feel a bit old when i see my school book!
well this was my job.
In Normandy we produce a lot of cider, but only a few people do it again that way.
Autumn is also the walnut harvest in "Périgord" I love walnut oil in some dishes it's very tasty.
And also nut oil.
These pages were taken from this book.
It looks really vintage doesn't it , but for me it doesn't seem very far...
(some pictures taken from google)

Hi Catherine,

I can imagine apple picking can be hard work. I did some bulb peeling when I was young, which was hard work as well!

I never made walnut pie, but it looks very good on your photo! Thank you for the recipe. I will print it out and put it in my cookery book.

Happy evening!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Hello Catherine!
I missed this post..don't know how I did that but I'm catching up now. I LOVE orchards and apples and all fruits. When I was 7 we lived on an orchard in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. There were apples and apricots and peaches, pears, cherries growing all around us. I was allowed to climb one cherry tree near the house and eat all I wanted to...and boy did I ever eat lots! I don't think it would be fun picking in in the rain at all but I guess when you're young and you need the money for school you'll do what you have to to get by. This cake looks wonderful...I think I'll have to see if I can figure out the measurements and make this...I know my hubby would like it. Have a great weekend mon amie! Maura :)
