Here are The Simple Things, we always enjoy sharing excellent words. Here’s one for autumn
An adjective meaning of, like, or pertaining to walnuts. It comes from the Latin juglans, (walnut), which is derived from ‘ju’ a shortened form of Jupiter (as in the God) and ‘glans’ meaning ‘acorn’, so: Jupiter’s acorn.
We are unsure what Jupiter had to do with it all.
You can use it in a literal way, meaning ‘to do with walnuts’, but we prefer the less common metaphorical use, for example: ‘Great Uncle Arthur’s nose was large, misshapen and tanned. A juglandaceous feature that entered the room before he did.’
We have a very juglandaceous Finders Keepers feature in our October ‘Create’ issue, by Lia Leendertz, in which she gives advice on foraging walnuts and sweet chestnuts and recipes for using your haul.
