Are you eating walnuts?

Look how great they are!

Have any recipes to share or ways to incorporate them into the diets?

Yes. Just raw as halves or as Walnut crumbs in biscuits.

Some of the early settlers in North America used to use Walnut trees as a guide to good farmland. The thinking was that the trees only grew in very fertile soil so their presence was an indication of land which was especially good for other plants as well.

Haven't tried these...but they look yummy....Can't have Tabasco...
Anyone know of something "hot" to sub that would be compliant for most types?

Spicy Maple Walnuts

4 Tbs. unsalted butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
6 quarter-size slices fresh ginger, halved
1 Tbs. water
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Tabasco, or to taste
1 lb. (4 cups) shelled walnuts

In a conventional oven
Heat the oven to 300ºF. Combine all the ingredients except the nuts in a small saucepan and slowly simmer over low heat for 2 to 3 min. Put the nuts in a bowl, pour the glaze over them, and stir and toss to coat them with the glaze. Line a jellyroll pan with foil and spread the nuts in a single layer on it. Bake for 30 to 40 min., stirring at 15- and then 10-min. intervals. When the nuts look light and almost dry as you toss them, they're done. Don't touch them; the caramelized sugar is extremely hot. Slide the foil onto a rack and let the nuts cool completely.


Store in airtight containers or plastic freezer bags.

I made a spinach salad with hard boiled egg and walnuts the other night.  Sprinkled it with some walnut oil and a olive oil/lemon dressing I made.  It was quite good.

I saved the leftovers and for breakfast I sauted them lightly in a pan on low heat to not burn the oil.  Then I added a couple of eggs.  The walnuts and the egg combination was  . . . .  interesting.  Don't know if I'd do it again with the walnuts.

Maybe adding beef or chicken would be better.

Walnuts go really well in salads, especially with beetroot and feta - just roast small beetroot (with their skins on is fine) in some EVOO till lovely and soft, then when cool add to some rocket or romaine/cos(or green beans are nice too), sprinkle with feta and toasted walnuts and a simple lemon juice/lemon rind/evoo/honey dressing and eat!! Yum!

I like them stuffed into fresh dates as a sweet treat too.

Walnuts make a good pesto for those who don't eat pine nuts.  Fresh basil, walnuts, garlic, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil.

I've never made it, but it's sold locally here, and it sure is delicious!!

Question about walnuts.  I have heard in the way past and recently if you boils walnut you take the bitter out.  I love walnuts straight from the shell, but thought about giving that a shot.  However, here in the south boiled penuts is a big thing, and as much as I love peanuts, those are the worst things I have ever eaten.  So do walnuts have the same texture, as to making them soft like peanuts?  

As far as peanuts go, no I don't eat them, can't, I am allergic to them.  Yes it is an allergy, not the digetion thing, have had it my whole life.  Of course would try to sneak one or two here or there, a candy bar usually.  I have been real good about not eating them however, dumb dumb here was given a handful of sweet and salty from my Uncle.  Fell in love with them, they were addictive.  Bought a can, ate about half of it and oh boy!  Haven't touched peanuts in almost a year, not even ONE.  I had never been in that kind of shape before, messed up for about a week.  Didn't bother me a bit when I found peanuts as an avoid!

I'd have to support the idea that using walnuts in recipes is an endless ingredient.

I use them slightly toasted with chicken pieces.  They're also good with broccoli florets.

Know you'll enjoy many varieties for this healthy nut.

I sprinkle walnuts on my salad and eat them straight as snacks. Really fulfilling and keeps my sugar cravings at bay.

I wouldn't boil walnuts. Just soak them overnight and you take away the bitterness and phytic acid.

I could eat walnuts in any way possible.  But I do soak them and dehydrate them.  Put them on salads, eat them alone, put them in soup, put them in your grain.  Put them anywhere.  Sam I am.

Walnuts are great!  They were neutrals for me, but they are superfoods since I tweaked and re-ran my swami.  I like them in trail mix.  And I sometimes pan toast chopped walnuts to use them in a salad, especially with dried cranberries.  That buttery crunch adds a nice note to a green salad.  I do almonds that way, too.  I once had a wonderful walnut soup in a restaurant for Thanksgiving as a first course.  I'm not sure how they made it, but it was creamy like a bisque, and probably not difficult at all to duplicate.    Maple syrup glazed walnuts with rosemary & sea salt are good.

I love walnuts, but they are SO high in omega-6 that I have to eat them in moderation.  I can't eat walnut butter at all - it causes depression and anxiety.

I toss them in a plastic baggie with raisins, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. DD1 adds chocolate chips to hers. I keep this in my purse as "emergency food" to eat when I'm away from home and hungry.

Good emergency food!!!

I'm not sure if all of you soak and dehydrate, but the bitterness is greatly reduced when you do.  They're so smooth.  And Pecans taste like butter.
