Recipe Nocino liqueur

Nocino is a sticky dark brown liqueur from Emilia-Romagna region made from unripe green walnuts steeped in spirit. It has an aromatic but bittersweet flavor. Nocino is a typical homemade product, but it is possible to find it also in the supermarkets. Commercially available Nocino is typically 40% alcohol by volume, or 80 proof. Nocino is believed to have originally been produced by the Celts, and, during the Middle Ages, Italian monasteries used nocino for its medicinal properties and also as an alcoholic treat. Ordine del Nocino Modenese is an association of Spilamberto which, since 1978, promotes the traditional Nocino of Modena.
