A creamy, meaty, slightly crisp nut with a woodsy flavor. The skin imparts a faint bitterness. Perfect in desserts sprinkle on top of sundaes, mix into banana bread, pulverize for cookies. And walnut pieces make a great addition to salads: try them with blue cheese, apples, and baby spinach leaves.
Goes great with: a wide variety of cheeses, from soft-ripening brie to crumbly cheddar.
