2. In a separate pot. Bring two other cups of water to the boil, add the walnuts and let them soak for half an hour then drain them and mix them with the liquid in the other pot. Let both pots rest for an hour, then drain and sprinkle the walnuts on whatever they are being used for, such as the spareribs.
