Minnesota Cooking: Making Ink from Black Walnut Husks
My first step was to Google making ink from black walnut husks.
I wonder what is easier. Just adding water to a ziplock bag and letting it mix, or do you really have to boil it.
An old coffee maker from the Thrift Store would be an idea maker. Just put the black walnuts in, add the water and let it brew. Then there is that handy, dandy spigot at the bottom for accessing your freshly made ink.
I suppose that if I plan on selling black walnut husks, for people who want to make their own ink, I should bag up and box what I have.
Black Walnut Ink
- Put black walnut husks in some suitable metal pan or coffee maker
- Add water to cover. . Add some 1/2 cup salt and 1 cup vinegar to your batch to retard spoilage.
- Heat to boiling, turn down heat to simmer for 8 hours
