Walnuts have been enjoyed since their origins in Ancient Persia. Traded along the Silk Road between China and the Middle East, walnuts eventually made their way to California in the 1700’s when Franciscan Monks began cultivating them in their monastery gardens.
Most walnuts sold commercially are of this Persian walnut variety, now called the English Walnut. These walnuts were grown in the United States and have been pre shelled and chopped for your convenience. Save time and mess shelling, cleaning, and chopping fresh walnuts when you can order raw chopped walnuts from us!
Walnuts are a healthy snack. They are naturally gluten-free, and are approved for many diets like the DASH diet, Mediterranean diet, and Paleo diet among others.
Add flavor, crunch, and depth to salads, breakfast grains, and baked goods with these English Walnut pieces. Grind them up for nutty earthy crusts for fish, chicken, and meat. Or garnish autumn soups like butternut squash or lentil soup.
Shelled walnuts can be stored in the pantry in an airtight container for several months, but for longer storage they are best kept in the freezer.
