Soak the oats for 12 hours in the water, lemon juice and condensed milk. Wash the apples and dry well with a clean towel. Remove the stalks, but leave the skins and cores. Grate directly into the mixture with a coarse grater (the apple must not be reduced to a mush). Stir continuously to prevent the apple going brown. Sprinkle the nuts on top just before serving.
