View Full Version : SO excited - getting lots of walnuts! Any good recipes?

I've seen this sign "Walnut Meats" at a house in our neighborhood that routinely sells various produce & nursery items (maybe a relative has a farm?) for a long time - finally decided to stop. She is selling walnut meats for $4/lb, locally grown! I know it's not organic, but I just ordered 1lb for $10 (!!) online, plus shipping.
I plan on going back this afternoon and buying 9lbs for $27. I want to make some chocolate truffles with a walnut/date sort of filling, and I use them in my chocolate banana shakes - but any other great recipes out there for walnuts? :D

Excellent! Not to beat a dead horse but the zuchinni crackers in this thread are superb!

I don't have an actual recipe. I made these so they tasted right. I soaked the walnuts in a mix of date and water that had been put in the food processor and I added some cinnamon to the mix. I added a bit of mesquite flour for thickening and some maple syrup for the flavor. I then dehydrated until crispy. I liked them better than the ones I buy at the health food store.

Taco meat is really good......your going to those your walnuts. When they haven't been processed they don't give you cankers on your tongue.

I like to soak 'em, then mix a LITTLE EVOO and Celtic salt and dehydrate and eat as a snack! So good. For kicks I sometimes throw in some nutritional yeast. AND have even made a "paste" out of sunflower seeds, EVOO, Nama Shoyu, and mixed that and dehydrated them.

I make glazed/candied nuts using walnuts/and or pecans
puree dates and agave (I use dates and maple, not raw but a minor amount and makes them VERY crisp))
pour over nuts, stir
add vanilla, cinnamon, sea salt, stir
add several handfuls of mesquite powder, stir
dry on teflex sheets till no longer sticky
remove to mesh sheets and dry till crisp...
Great to snack on or to add to salads, etc...

Good For you......you can also Freeze them if you get too many. Freezing will keep them from going rancid.
