Walnuts are one of the most popular and versatile of all nuts working well in a variety of walnut recipes.
Most commonly used is the dried nut, either shelled or unshelled. When picked young, the moist and milky white kernels are mainly used for pickling.
Walnuts can be enjoyed raw or cooked and their slightly bitter in flavour lends them well to both sweet and savoury dishes, as well as being particularly good in baking.
What’s more they are an extremely healthy nutrient dense nut, packed with protein and essential fatty acids, making them a great option for vegetarians.
