Yesterday, I was gifted about 10 pounds of walnuts in the shell harvested straight from the orchard. After I shell and eat a pound, I need to figure out what to make with the other nine pounds. PLEASE hit with with your favorite recipes. Anything goes, sweet, savory.... I want them all. TIA

A walnut pie would be good. Just use your favorite pecan pie recipe.

We love pecan pie! I hadn't thought about that Marie! Thank you. I am going to make a "walnut" pie. Gosh darn, that sounds delish.

Sweet, nutty, and herbally aromatic, this vinaigrette compliments a wide variety of dishes, and is easy to make! The sugared walnuts, nut oils, and fresh herbs dramatically open the palate for roasted meats, crisp wines, and full-bodied fare. It is a great herald for spring!

Someone recommended this fantastic site to me a few weeks ago... for black walnuts, but you could adapt the recipes for English walnuts, I'm sure...

Where has this recipe been all my life? I make lots of sweet recipes using oranges and honey. In fact, I may whip this up today. Thank you Nanny.

LOL, my hairdresser loves me Nanny. I've been going to her for years. She calls my time with her my "beautification appointments." LOL! After she's finished with me, she always tells me "you are stinking' cute!" (She tells all her clients that, I'm sure)

These walnuts are a special treat for Christmas, and are well worth the time it takes to make them.

Maybe something like this? Also, a friend of mine freezes Walnuts and she's been doing it for years so I think they must fare ok if they're wrapped up well. She does shell them that's work. :(
Nov. 19, 2012 8:22 am
you can freeze them in the shell also-- double bag them- take out as needed- mama always made walnuts in the oven -tossed in melted butter sugar and a sprinkle of salt- so yummy
Nov. 19, 2012 8:29 am
nanny...I'm happy to know that they freeze in the shell well....your mama's walnuts sound like the perfect sweet and salty treat!
Nov. 19, 2012 8:57 am
Oh, nanny, thanks for the tip about freezing them. I am so going to do that. I have so much to do in the next couple of weeks. This will take ONE thing off my plate. TY again.
Nov. 19, 2012 9:11 am
my mom would buy pecans- 100 pounds at a time & freeze in the shell- my dad would shell a whole vegetable bowl everynite after dinner for her to make karo pecan pies-- no wonder i don't make pecan pies-lol

This is a family recipe that's been made at Christmas time by at least 4 generations. This year will be the first for number 5!!! 'Bubba' brought it with her when she came from Lithuania. I pass it on in the true spirit of this season!

These are great stored in an airtight tin! Happy Thanksgiving Candice!

Don't have a recipe, but they store longer in the freezer. Nuts can go rancid at room temp due to the oils.

Hi Janet, mmmmmmm, love Russian Tea cookies. I haven't made this recipe, but now I will. Thank you. BTW, will you send me your e-mail address? Mine is
