Make Black Walnut Pie Your New Holiday Tradition

Category Recipes | Posted November 24, 2015

This year, add a nutty, robust, slightly wild taste to your holiday table with a Black Walnut Pie.  American Black Walnuts bring a distinctive twist to your holiday pie lineup, and offer guests a taste that’s all-new to some and a time-honored favorite to others.  In this pie recipe, wild Black Walnuts bake up toasty and tempting, along with brown sugar, vanilla, and butter in a flaky pie crust. Serve it warm with a scoop of Black Walnut Ice Cream!

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.
