I just printed the recipes for Black Walnut Cake and Black Walnut Cookies and I noticed that people were having problems finding Black Walnuts. It is very difficult to find FRESH Black Walnuts but I received a catalog today from Sunnyland Farms, Inc.
Albany. Georgia. They do have the biggest and best varieties of nuts I have ever seen and I am sure that you, like I, have had trouble finding FRESH nuts of any variety in grocery stores no matter where you live.
I plan on ordering Black Walnuts from them today - as a child at Christmastime I have fond memories of sitting on the floor with my sister as our Father used a hammer to crack black walnuts on an old black iron of our Grandmother's. We sat with our nut picks
and eagerly awaited the cracked nuts so we could pick out the Black Walnuts. Their rich flavor was a real treat at Christmas back in the late 1930 and early 40's.
I hope the people who made their cakes and cookies with English walnuts will try the same recipes with Black Walnuts - the cakes will be outstanding and unforgettable! Good Luck!
