Additional Uses for Walnuts in Cooking

Walnuts are protein powerhouses. Along with the omega-3 fatty acids in the nuts, walnuts are essential for every healthy kitchen.

Simple ways of incorporating them into meals include using them as toppings for salads and desserts, working into batters of all kinds, grinding them up and using them as a meat replacement or supplement, chopping and throwing them into sautes, sauces, and more. Every meal can be made healthier and tastier with a handful of walnuts.

Order a supply of Glenda’s Farmhouse walnuts to make your chicken, tacos, or salads better. Store them in airtight containers in cool conditions for ultimate freshness. We suggest the fridge for short-term storage and the freezer for longer terms; neither will affect the texture or flavor of the ingredient.
