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.

“Hi, I did received the black walnuts today. I am giving them as a gift.
They look good.

, Stockbridge, GA August 20, 2014

“Ordered the black walnuts and received them in 3 days! Loved the fun packaging, but what most impressed me was the great quality of the product. Have spent many hours as a kid, and adult cracking black walnuts under a big tree at my grandparents house. These took me back 40 yrs, and tasted just like I remember them. I made a black walnut pie for some friends that had never experienced the goodness and it disappeared! Thank you.. looking forward to ordering from you again! YaY!”

“I have been impressed with the ease of ordering and prompt shipment. Black walnuts are a reminder of my childhood. When I was little in Oklahoma, we had a black walnut tree in our yard and mom made black walnut pies (like Pecan pies). We had to pick, crack and get the nuts made our hands black and the meat was almost impossible to get out! BUT I never forgot the flavor!!
I will be ordering more.

“Always good taste great.”

, Ethridge, TN July 16, 2014

“I was so happy when I found your company and could get black walnuts. I mix them in my granola and fruit for breakfast. I sampled a few and they were delicious. I remember the days of husking, cracking and picking out the nut meats. Fond memories but one I do not want to repeat. Loved your light hearted humor. The Cocoa nibs I have not tried. I need to figure out what to do with them. Thanks a lot for everything. I am in hog heaven. Roger”
