What’s new at Maisie Jane’s? Walnuts! And we’re so excited because when it comes to nuts that are versatile, healthy and delicious, walnuts are certainly near the top of the list!
Like our beloved almonds, walnuts are a great source of health-enhancing nutrition. They’re full of antioxidants that fight bad cholesterol and are a better source of Omega-3 fatty acids than any other nut! That means it may help fight heart disease. Walnuts also are a great source of compounds that reduce inflammation and promote a healthy gut. Studies show that they might help lower blood pressure and lower your risk of diabetes. They even seem to improve brain health! I’ll be sharing information about all these things in the coming year.
We offer two types of walnuts at Maisie Jane’s. The first are the ones we grow right here on our family farm. They’re the traditional kind most people are familiar with and love! And they’re the ones most people use for baking or adding to a wide number of treats. They’re delicious in desserts! And they can even be ground to make nut butter, walnut flour or nut milk. These are the walnuts you can’t do without!
Our second offering is Red Walnuts “Livermore Variety”. This variety comes from the same family as traditional English walnuts but they have a thin red seed coat on the outside. Some people think they taste a little sweeter than traditional walnuts. They definitely have a higher oil content which makes them a bit creamier or buttery. And they’re lower in tannic acids which is good to know if you’re sensitive to that. They’re very striking in a salad or any time you want to add a little gourmet pizzazz!
We also currently have one flavored walnut offering: one of my favorites, Cinnamon Glazed Walnuts. I always think I’m going to add these to a wonderful nut bread or cookie. They’re not too sweet and have just the right amount of cinnamon. But they’re eaten too fast in my house to ever make it into a recipe! Chop them up and add them to oatmeal or use them to top a salad or ice cream.
