OREOVKA – WALNUT RAKIJA

Oreovka or so-called walnut rakija is an old folk remedy for thyroid problems, problems with digestion, but also for a good mood. Our grandmothers made it, our moms too and now we’re making it.
So, first you need to take a walk somewhere in nature and pick at least 40 green small nuts.

The method of making is – for one bottle or a jar of 1 to 1.5 kg, you need:

  • 40 green nuts, 
  • 1 liter of homemade rakija and 
  • 300-500 g of sugar (maybe brown sugar or honey, although honey will change the taste, but make it much healthier). 

 
Preparation:

  1. The walnuts should be washed, dried and cut in several places (if they are larger, they can be cut in half). 
  2. Put them in a bottle with a wide opening or in a large jar, add sugar or honey and fill with rakija.
  3. Keep it closed and left for 40 days in the sun. 
  4. Then you need to drain the brandy in another bottle and it’s good to have a cup every morning. You can also drink it after lunch if you have a problem with digestion.
