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.

“Sorry Guys, this is Mrs. James Kelly. I ordered the nuts. I love black walnuts and if the trees would grow here I would plant one. When I was a little girl in Missouri I would get a hammer and pick up a bag of black walnuts and crack them, pick them out and then mix them with peanut butter and karo dark syrup and make myself a snack. It was a lot of work but worth every minute. Your black walnuts are like a taste of childhood for me! Thank you, Becky Kelly”

“Love the nuts, energy bar, hot cereal, etc; have placed several orders and will continue to....AND I never knew all these years to soak and dissolve bee pollen before ingesting (which you recommend)....AND when I opened your packet of bee pollen, the fragrance of honey...well, I've never had such a fabulous, delicious and nutritious bee pollen....I'm even healthier with your products...thank you, thank you!”

“I'm originally from the "Show Me State". When I read that your black walnuts were predominately from MO., it reminded me of the Autumns of my past childhood. Our family would drive through the walnut groves intermingled with all the other deciduous woods on our farm, and gather the blackend hulls that hide the delicious and characteristic flavors of Octobers free bounty. Our stained hands would tell all around us of our activities. We would then haul them to the hulling mills and collect our prize for our efforts. What was kept for our own home use provided a medium for the family to converse and banter as we sat around the kitchen table while we cracked and picked the meats out for the coming holiday seasons divinity and fudge. The black walnut ice cream come summer was always one of my favorites as well. Thank you so much for giving me a little taste of years gone by and rekindling the joys of my childhoods less complicated holiday season. ”
