Crunchy, Flavorful Black Walnuts
When you want an intense nutty flavor paired with an amazingly satisfying crunch, few things compare to our big, rich black walnuts. These nuts arrive shelled and in chunky pieces that make one of the most decadent ice cream toppings. Our customers also love to eat black walnuts in salads, as an ingredient in baked goods or just by the raw handful.
If you want to add the luxurious flavor of these nuts to your favorite recipes that call for ordinary English walnuts, do so carefully. Black walnuts are much more potent, so it's best to either reduce the amount of nuts called for in the recipe or use a mixture of both walnut varieties.
Hand-Harvested, Shelled Black Walnuts
Getting these nuts to customers is truly a labor of love, as nearly every step in the cultivation, harvesting, hulling and final preparation of shelled black walnuts is still done by hand. The nuts fall naturally from the trees in late autumn, where they must be harvested directly from the forest floor. The green, messy hulls are then removed, the nuts are dried, the extra-tough nutshells are cracked and, finally, these delicacies can be plucked out.
When we buy black walnuts, we love to think about all the hands-on effort that it took to bring them to us. We hope you do, too!
Black Walnut Health Tips
If you're watching your cholesterol, these nuts can help make your diet a whole lot tastier. Black walnuts are very low in saturated fat, yet very high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which are the good fats that can lower bad cholesterol while maintaining good cholesterol.
Adding a few of these nuts to any dish can help boost its protein, iron and fiber content without adding sugar. They also make a nutritionally similar substitute for the tree nuts that are enjoyed in the now-popular and healthy Mediterranean diets.
You can even eat black walnuts for better overall cardiovascular health, as they contain large amounts of omega-3 fats, which help support cardiovascular function.

“We purchased the Black Walnuts and we can say OMG those were the best ever. Thinking because we ordered them online they would be ok, but OMG they were great! They were very fresh with excellent taste. Expecting small pieces of nuts but no they were large, good bite size. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. We will be sure to share not only our cakes but your website.”
