The mild, creamy, sweet flavour of California Walnuts make them an excellent choice for a variety of sweet and savoury dishes but when it comes to baking, whether it’s a fruity walnut crumble or a tasty drizzle cake, adding a handful of California Walnuts to your mixing bowl is a great way to add texture and a delicious nutty taste.
Interesting fact: The walnut tree has been around since 7,000 BC and is the oldest tree food known to man and Walnuts were first cultivated in California over 230 years ago. Today California is the second largest producer of walnuts in the world.
So don’t forget, when you’re buying your walnuts, be sure to look out for ‘California’ or ‘USA’ on the label to make sure you’re using only the very best.
