Black walnuts have a distinctive taste all their own. They're excellent in fudge, cakes, brownies, or on their own. They also have more protein per serving than English walnuts.
While they can be are a lot of work, we offer you three options:
You can order them de-hulled , in which we have removed the green, or black hull, which is the messiest part.
Now you can choose to shell them (the most effective ways are with a vice, or a hammer, depending on your skill level.) or save them to continue seasoning for a later time. These walnuts can be kept in their shells for a few years.
Your efforts will be amply rewarded when you taste their unique flavor it baked goods, on seasonal salads, or all by themselves.
We also offer a limited amount of prepared black walnut meats, in which we have de-hulled, and shelled them, and are packed as nut pieces & halves.
And also limited, chopped black walnuts.
Our black walnuts come from the old trees on our farm, where we never treat the ground with pesticides, or chemicals.
They make especially nice gifts for the holidays!
