   15                    Walnuts, shelled (about 1
                         Cup)
      1/4   ts           Ground pepper
    2       ts           Liquamen (sep. recipe)
    2       ts           Grape juice or sweet wine
    2       ts           Olive oil
      1/2   ts           Ground cumin
                         Garnish of parsley or water
                         Cress and walnut halves
 
      1) Grind the walnuts in a blender, or pound them in
   a mortar until pulverized.  Transfer to a mixing bowl.
   
      2) Add the remaining ingredients and blend well.
   Place the spread on a flat serving dish and form into
   the shape of a fish.  Decorate by surrounding with
   parsley (or cress) and unbroken walnut halves.
   
      3) Serve with bread, rolls, crackers, or by itself.
   NOTE: The Romans preferred the taste of walnuts with
   their thin inner skins removed. To do this, drop the
   walnut meats into boiling water for 30 seconds. Drain
   immediately, rinse under cold water, and then peel off
   the thin inner skins.
