We always had a bowl of walnuts in the living room or dining room growing up too.  In fact, even our ski house in NH had one...a Dedham pottery type of bowl filled with walnuts with a nutcracker sitting in it.  Memories.
I have trouble with some walnuts though - the bitter ones "sting" my tongue.

Quoted from Goldie

I wonder would walnut trees grow in my yard? In tempered climate? How to find walnut roots and stem to plant and then how messy would the nuts be?  What greater tribut to my Mom than planting a walnut tree!  I have a space in the middle of my lawn where it would fit perfectly.  
So is there a BTD specific species of walnut I could buy and plant???


      





Walnut trees will grow in yard (may need to select right variety for your area), but be aware that once you have the walnut established nothing else will grow very well (They block light and emit juglone, a chemical that is toxic to some plants and stunts the growth of others).



Planting a walnut grove not only provides nuts for the future, but nice wood that is fairly valuable.

Natural range of walnuts:

http://forestry.about.com/od/hardwoods/ss/walnut_3.htm

Walnuts falling from trees can be a mild hazard.

The hulls of the nuts are messy (stains skin and fabric).


As other have already noted the black walnut is rated higher for type B.

The black walnut is the messier tree with nuts that are much more difficult to shell.

Once you get the black walnuts out of the shell they are worth 50 to 100% more than English walnuts.

Quoted from Goldie
Just to add to this as a tribute:  My mom lived a long life 91.  She grew up on a farm and then moved to City life but never lost her roots.  She so many times ASKED: why does no one plant food bearing trees in the US where there is soooo much space?  Her idea was that we all ought to plant trees from which future generations could benefit.  She seemed to know that she would never see a walnut tree giving off nuts, but she thought that no generation would have to go hungry if we all planted trees with the future in mind!  

I wonder would walnut trees grow in my yard? In tempered climate? How to find walnut roots and stem to plant and then how messy would the nuts be?  What greater tribut to my Mom than planting a walnut tree!  I have a space in the middle of my lawn where it would fit perfectly.  

Another thing she liked about food trees, that the wood would be precious.  

So is there a BTD specific species of walnut I could buy and plant???

Mom grew up in a country where every tree is treasured, and one has to get 'permission' to cut it down.  In the US the craz for trees and bushes is now becoming a danger of becoming food for wildfires.  Woods need tending to prevent fires, yet I never see anyone doing so.  I wish more trees where cut down on the view side of highways, so we all could see more of the mountains and valley's when traveling.
      


I feel sad when I think of hickory nut trees getting burnt down in wildfires.  
C_  and Goldie: ground walnut shells are very valuable to the fur industry; they are a key component in the dry powder that furriers use to yearly clean mink and other animal pelts and wearables. Make yourself a good living off those trees, Goldie! 3 products, shells, meat and wood are as good as having a flock of sheep (meat, milk, skins) for profit

And Romans were said to use the shells to singe the hair off their legs for beautification, but.......well, we have wax treatments now.

We have black walnuts galore around here, if you can get to them before the squirrels do! They are notoriously messy and tough to shell as C# says though. We used a vise when I was a kid--time-consuming but worked pretty well.

I love walnuts, both English and black. One of my favorite recipes is blended broccoli soup with a bit of grated pecorino stirred in, and toasted walnuts on top.

The black walnuts are all over the place here has well.  Hickory too.  As C# says not easy to shell and very messy. Black walnut tincture is good to rid of parasite (don't try making this one on your own)  South Ark has pecans. Your mom was right. I've put in 1 cherry and 1 apple this year hope can get some Almond trees for this fall.

Just bought walnut butter - it have been missing too long from my pantry, and organic walnut oil - very expensive, the equivalent of $16 for 1/2 a liter bottle. As I inquired for both butter and oil, they asked me at the store what had happened, and I cited Dr. D's post.

They pack the butter in small 200 g jars. The store had only one, and I plan to go to the factory situated somewhere here in town and buy some more.

I made walnut butter yesterday using English walnuts but added some beneficial cinnamon, rice bran oil and a little agave.  The result was almost like eating candy.

Then I took half of the walnut butter and added tamari roasted almonds and pecans for a whole new taste treat.  A different candy flavor. But the almonds and pecans were left a little chunky on purpose.

Much more fun than eating plain nuts is eating nut butter off a spoon!  I was imagining how this
would taste if I were allowed chocolate. (black dot)  I could imagine melting the dark chocolate and
drizzling it over little nut balls....Drooling as I type!

Chloe, Jane,
I, too, grew up with the bowl of nuts (in their shells) and a nut cracker on our living room coffee table! My Mom would sit and crack and eat most late evenings while watching TV!!!
There are Black walnut trees all around our family friend's house, inland from the San Francisco Bay area, called Antioch. He sends us some each year to bake with but we snack on them. I love the dark rugged trunks of Black walnut trees.

Not at all! They are everywhere in abundance. In the shell or shelled (in the shell they don't become rancid so fast). Fresh walnuts appear in the markets in Springtime, toward Passover.

They have a nickname: Brain nuts. Because their shape is like a brain.

Happy New Year to all..

Is walnut oil tasteless?  or does it have heavy taste?   heavy consistency?  

I Have 12 !!! diamond oils!!!!!   Wow I need to look at them more !!!..

I may go into the woods to plant a walnut tree..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Goldie, I think walnut oil tastes great.  It has a nutty walnut flavor, definitely not a light tasting oil.  I find olive oil rather bitter tasting and prefer walnut oil in a salad instead.  They are both diamonds, and I reach for the walnut oil the most.

Ditto. It's my go-to for anything that disagrees with the agressive flavor of a fruity evoo. Really appealing flavor for salad dressing with lemon juice & sea salt when the greens are delicate, like spring mix. Almond oil is better for fish though, I think, and of course none of these is good for searing or extended heating. When I need something that really recedes into the background, I use rice bran oil (also good, like ghee, for high heat). And oh, what I wouldn't give to be allowed avacado oil! I nearly cry when I think of pre-BTD days eating sliced avocado drizzled with walnut oil and sea salt. Nearly every night. OMG!

Great thread.  Seraffa, did your doctor do a test on you to determine your cortisol level?  I'd be interested in finding mine out!  Anyway, a great way to get an intense and delicious dose of walnut wonderfulness into your system is to make a walnut pesto.  Simply put your walnuts into a blender (or, far better, a food processor, if you have one, OR, if you are totally perfecto and want to be very authentic about the whole thing, you could actually use a mortar and pestle, but let's not get cray cray) with some olive or walnut oil, some lemon juice, sea salt to taste, and garlic.  PUREE!

Delicious pesto ALERT!

Pesto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love the classic basil pesto best, but walnut is, as the British say, "a little bit of all right", too.  Goes well on grains (like brown basmati rice), veggies, fish...or just mainline it intravenously, it is that good (especially the basil, but I digress--I am crazy for basil).

Black Walnut trees naturally occur in our region (southeast Ohio) and they are easy to grow, my brother has a tree and every year there are dozens of new sprouts from walnuts that dropped on the ground and never got harvested. I think Walnuts naturally occur throughout temperate zones here and in Eurasia.Wondering how walnut oil compares to walnuts in terms of food value.

Just wondering if walnut "milk" has the same effect?
I´ve been making it in recent weeks and absolutely love it with some seasonal (& compliant) fruits for breakfast.. really satisfying on these sunny summery mornings. I prefer it to any other "alternative" milks that I´ve tried so far. I want to try making ´pecan milk´ next!


ouu Rosa!!! tell me how you made the Walnut milk?!!
