Tips for Cooking with Walnuts

Walnuts transition well between savory and sweet dishes. Excellent in baked goods, like carrot cake, they also can create a hearty dip when combined with cooked vegetables. Of course, we love them toasted and added to our morning oatmeal and lunchtime salads.

Walnuts complement the flavors of Brussels sprouts and other green vegetables, cabbage, onion, chicken, pork, turkey, cheese, butter, chocolate, cranberries, and vanilla. If adding walnuts to vegetables, fish, or meats, do it during the last 3 minutes of cooking time.

Walnuts contain a lot of tannins (also found in red wine and black tea), which can make them taste bitter. Toast them at about 350ºF for 15 to 20 minutes to coax out their sweetness, or combine them with sweet things like honey and maple.



    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Melt the butter on the stovetop on medium heat.
    3. Add the maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Stir while the mixture comes to a simmer and simmer for 3 minutes.
    4. Stir in the walnuts, coating them well.
    5. Spoon and spread the walnuts onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
    7. Allow to cool for 30 minutes.
    8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

    Perfect as a snack or the sweet compliment to a range of dishes, the glazed walnuts created by following this recipe will be a hit every time you grab a handful. Begin by keeping walnuts from Glenda’s Farmhouse on hand.
