Think of all the aromas you love in the holiday kitchen, wafting up together in a single recipe. Cider-Baked Apples with Black Walnuts and Pumpkin-Caramel Sauce is a trendy twist of sweet and savory that’s sure to delight your Thanksgiving guests. Stuffed gala apples bake up with a harvest of wild Black Walnuts, dried figs, golden raisins, apple cider, and pumpkin pie spice. Serve with a warm drizzle of homemade pumpkin-caramel sauce for a show-stopping side dish or finish to your holiday feast.
Black Walnuts make the perfect ingredient for holiday recipes, since they’ve been part of our traditions for hundreds of years. Black Walnuts are a wild crop that’s hand-harvested every fall across the Midwest. The harvest and robust flavor in recipes can be traced back to the early days of Native Americans and American explorers. The nuts are 100% sustainable – so you’ll be bringing an ingredient with a naturally bold taste and rich story to your holiday table.
