A Taste of Fall Harvest

Posted October 1, 2014

Stockton, Mo. As the autumn leaves turn, most of us find our tastes turning to the familiar, more robust flavors of the season: Pumpkin spice, cranberry, apple, and of course, wild-harvested Black Walnuts.

The bold, rich taste of American Black Walnuts has long been associated with the fall season. In fact, the wild nuts are celebrated in October’s National Black Walnut Month and in autumn Black Walnut festivals all across the nation’s heartland. And now today’s trendiest urban venues and celebrity chefs are discovering innovative ways Black Walnuts can bring the full-bodied taste of fall to everything from salads to baked goods to desserts. For a bold, seasonal update to your salad, try this Savory Black Walnut Salad with Black Walnuts, feta cheese, dried cranberries, and grilled chicken served with Black Walnut Oil Dressing.

For even more autumn appeal, try varying the fall salad recipe with slices of seasonal apples or pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin spice is a favorite fall flavor-made even better when complemented by the crunch of Black Walnuts in Black Walnut Pumpkin Quick Bread. And Black Walnuts are an easy add-in to enhance the flavor of warm oatmeal on a chilly fall morning. For recipes, ideas, and more, visit our recipes page.
