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 so they’re ready for snacking and baking. We also carry in-shell black walnuts.

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 Benefits

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.

Walnut Studies

1) Lower Cholesterol Levels: Walnuts are one of the richest food sources of of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid, which may help lower cholesterol levels. Researchers have compared the effects of walnut and fatty fish consumption on the risk of developing coronary heart disease. They found that although both food sources are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, walnut consumption was more effective at lowering LDL "bad" cholesterol in healthy patients than fatty fish consumption. These findings were published in a 2009 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

2) Powerful Antioxidants: Walnuts are loaded with protective polyphenols! Compared to nine different types of raw and roasted nuts, walnuts contained the highest total polyphenol content, as demonstrated in a 2012 study published in the journal Food & Function. Polyphenols have antioxidant properties that have been associated with the prevention of degenerative diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases and cancers.

3) Stress Relief: Eating a handful of walnuts may help ease your mind. A 2010 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition examined the effect of walnut and walnut oil consumption on adults with elevated LDL cholesterol levels. They found that eating walnuts helped the adults reduce their blood pressure both at rest and during times of stress.

“I received the black walnuts today, can't wait to try them out in my black walnut cake this weekend. Thanks for the prompt service and delivery.

, Rosedale, Maryland November 14, 2012

“You "nutty" people have the fastest shipping I have EVER experienced, and the black walnuts are wonderful!! I need them for cakes I make at Christmas for my family, scattered over the country. They look forward to them, just as my sisters and I looked forward to them when my grandmother made them. It's hard to get black walnuts in the grocery stores, and these are much fresher smelling and tasting. Thanks!! ”

“The nuts arrived on Nov. 7, as promised & the black walnuts have been safely stored out of sight until I'm ready to bake. They look so good that if I don't put them away, I might not have enough to do my baking. If there are any left after I finish baking, I will certainly enjoy them.”

, Foley, AL November 9, 2012

“This is my second time ordering nuts from nuts.com. The pumpkin seeds are much larger than I expected and taste great! The black walnuts taste and smell as if they were just cracked. I haven't opened the other nuts yet but I expect they will be great also. The prices are very reasonable and they shipped extremely fast. I highly recommend nuts.com for all your nut cravings! Thanks, Ray Etter - Vinton VA (USA)”

“Great nuts - fresh and yummy. If I don't watch myself they'll be gone before fudge-making time. Better order extra. And I love the packaging! Too funny.”

“I received the black walnut meats and the horehound candy on Wednesday after I placde the order on Sunday.

I like the way the products were packaged in the re-sealable bags.

Thanks!”

“Hey Guys! My black walnuts arrived exactly when you said they would and I couldn't be more happy. Planning to use for fudge and cakes mostly to give as gifts to my friends who only thought there was one kind of walnut. Boy, are they in for a surprise. I will definitely order again. Q: what is best way to store any nuts I don't use right away. Do they freeze well?
Thanks
