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!

I just tossed some black walnuts in the freezer today. I had hoped to make something special with them for the holidays but ran out of time. Thanks for the information.

I love black walnut ice cream but can't find a recipe. The only one I found called for black walnut extract and that seems to be impossible to find.

Stop by my place in the fall! I grind them with the lawn mower! Neighbors have plenty, too!

Here in NE Iowa, people are more than willing to let you have the ones that fall from their trees. You get to do the leg work yourself but in the winter on a farm, there is more free time than summer. My father in law has been shelling them for years. I bet he does about 15-20# each season. He puts them in little ziplock bags and I am the lucky recipient of several bags if I behave myself!So I guess, my point is, ask around. I bet you have friends and neighbors that would give them to you in the fall if you don't mind a little work and the black stained fingers to go with it!
