Black Walnut Pieces - per lb
Item #: NTW102
Our Price: $14.75


Black Walnuts have a rich flavor and crunch quite different from the familiar English or Carpathian walnut. Because of their robust, distinctive flavor, black walnut meats are used mainly used in traditional treats such as ice cream, baked goods and other confections.

Similar in nutritional composition to the milder-tasting English walnut, black walnuts are high in unsaturated fat and protein, with no cholesterol.

Grilled Wild Mushroom Salad with Black Walnut Vinaigrette
Black walnuts possess an earthy, intense flavor very different from the "tame" flavor of the familiar English walnut. For some, this distinctive flavor is an acquired taste; for others, it's love at first bite.

Given the intense flavor of black walnuts, black walnut oil is much milder in flavor than you might expect. It has a surprisingly rich, buttery texture with complex notes reminiscent of truffle oil. It's robust enough to hold its own with full-flavored ingredients, like wild mushrooms, yet it's never overpowering or cloying.

Add the woodsy flavor of fire-grilled chanterelle mushrooms and the sweetness of ripe pears, and you just might find that this is a salad to remember.

Iceberg Salad with Fennel, Feta and Black Walnuts
To some, Iceberg lettuce is rather 'retro,' recalling bland, uninspired salads of the 50's & 60's. For many, though, it's always been something of a guilty pleasure - not as hip or trendy as mesclun or arugula. But iceberg lettuce has never quite gone away; it obviously has something that continues to appeal to many people.

Why deny it?
Iceberg lettuce is satisfying - mild in flavor, crisp & cool. It's a great supporting player for other more assertive, distinctive flavors, like salty feta cheese, thinly-sliced fennel and robust black walnut oil.
