Walnuts and Prunes from Domaine du Garinet

Harvesting walnuts


Both walnuts and prunes have long been traditional crops of our region. Although we are primarily a wine-producing property, we also have a walnut orchard and a small plum orchard for making prunes. We sell high quality walnuts and prunes, and we also make fine walnut oil plus a range of delicious preserves and baked products. We are delighted to be able to resume production of oil after a very large crop in 2020, following the very small yields of 2019 and 2018.

Baked products are freshly made for sale at Montcuq market on Sunday mornings, but are sometimes available from the freezer at the Domaine.

Walnuts

We sell our walnuts in the shell after careful selection from the best of the crop; supermarket nuts are no comparison.

Our quality walnut oil is pressed for us at a mill in the north of the Lot, using kernels shelled by us from our nuts. It is excellent in vinaigrette, and for dressing pasta or vegetables.

Our walnut bread, cakes and walnut-and-fig brownies are highly sought after at the market – come early to be sure they’re not sold out!

Prunes

We sell our prunes either dry for keeping, or ready-to-eat, and we have an excellent range of preserves, all made by us from our own produce and other locally grown ingredients. These include Prunes in Cahors Wine, Sweet Pickled Prunes, a prune/orange jam (Favorite de Sophie) and Prune Chutney. Our objective for all these products is the same as for our wine – consistently high quality.

Other Products

We make an excellent quince jelly from quinces grown on our property and we have an ‘alien’ product – marmalade - (no, we don’t have an orange grove - the oranges are bought from Seville!). The product supplies deprived English residents but also has a considerable following from French customers who really appreciate its qualities.
