Walnut Preserve

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)

WALNUT PRESERVE. Take, before St. John's Day, fresh walnuts and peel them and pierce them, and put to soak in cold water for nine days, and each day renew the water: then let them dry, and fill the holes with cloves and ginger, and boil in honey, and thus keep them preserved.
