For Delicious and Healthy Holiday Dishes, Bite into Eastern Black Walnuts.
"The Ultimate Nut" Adds Vibrant Flavor, Health Benefits to Every Course.
Stockton, MO - October 15, 2001 - Rare is the food that makes recipes appeal to the entire spectrum of food lovers - from unapologetic dessert hounds to calorie-conscious health nuts. But in the American Eastern Black Walnut, chefs and home gourmets from coast to coast have found that elusive ingredient. Fall is harvest time for black walnuts, and it's no coincidence that as people prepare foods for entertaining, freshly reaped black walnuts answer two important -- and often conflicting - questions: "What can I make that's delicious?" and "What can I make that's healthy?" Until now, finding a food rich in both taste and nutrition has been a hard nut to crack.
High in essential nutrients such as magnesium, phosphorus, and niacin, the American Eastern Black Walnut is native to the central and southeastern US. While over 93 percent of its fat is unsaturated -- the "good" kind of fat -- the real excitement is found in the nut's taste. It has a striking, pungent flavor that electrifies everything from chicken breasts to fudge pie. In fact, conventional walnut wisdom says anyone who can't find a palette-pleasing dish featuring the Eastern Black Walnut is, well, nuts.
Missouri-based Hammons Products, the leading proponent of black walnuts in the food industry, celebrates the virtues of "The Ultimate Nut" at its web site,(see banner above) Here you'll find a wealth of information about the nut, including full nutritional information, a surprising list of industrial uses for nut shells.
