ORGANIC WALNUTS, halves & pieces, domestic
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical name: Juglans regia
The most common edible species of walnuts are either the English walnut (J. regia) originated in Persia, and the black walnut (J. nigra) which is native to eastern North America. The black walnut is of high flavor, but due to its hard shell and poor hulling characteristics it is not grown commercially for nut production.
Qualities: unlike other nuts high in monounsaturated fatty acids, walnuts are composed largely of polyunsaturated fatty acids (72% of total fats), particularly alpha-linolenic acid (14%) and linoleic acid (58%), as well as oleic acid as 13% of total fats. Walnuts without shells are 4% water, 15% protein, 65% fat, and 14% carbohydrates, including 7% dietary fiber.
Common use: Walnut meats are available in either their shells or shelled. Our walnuts are shelled and raw. Walnuts are enjoyed in many culinary dishes, both savory and sweet, as well as baked goods and are delicious candied or pickled.
Storage: ideal temperatures for long term storage are −3 to 0 °C (27 to 32 °F) and low humidity

I purchased 5 pounds of the organic walnuts in June of 2021 and have kept them in a sealed container. Ever since we bought them they have a tinge of bitterness and no sweetness at all. I have determined they are definitely rancid and even get a bit of stomach upset after eating. Very disappointed to have spent $105 on inedible walnuts.
We love these walnuts. They have clearly been stored properly for close to a year, but have no rancid taste. I look forward to more flavor from the new crop. We add a handful to our enormous breakfast bowls every morning to provide a healthy fat, to help us absorb fat-soluble vitamins and calcium. (Nonfat plain yogurt, boiled steel-cut oatmeal, a mix of fresh greens, berries, fat-free cottage cheese, a little grass-fed skim milk and two other fruits, all organic and mixed together.)
We LOVE your organic walnuts. I have some every day with yogurt and fruit… [And occasionally with Gelato after dinner too. (smile) So glad we found you — Thank you for your wonderful healthy products…… Betty (and Bob too)
