    Thank you for sharing.
    In one place you say black walnuts and another just walnuts.
    Our daughter and son- in - law farm walnuts; any reason why we can't use english walnuts - they are just regular walnuts.
    I can use the black walnut flavoring and just regular walnuts ?

    please pm me.
    again thank you ~

    my grandma grew up on a farm and they had 2 english walnut trees. When she married and they got their own house, they planted an english walnut tree. Eventually the tree died and it had to be cut down. We (my parents) had some property with black walnut trees and took some to her, hulled and cracked. She said she didn't know how to bake with them and my dad said just like you do with english walnuts.

    Long story short, black walnuts just have more flavor to them than english walnuts. You can still use them, walnuts are walnuts, one's just walnuty-er than the other


    And thanks for the recipe!!

    My mom used black walnuts in anything that called for nuts. Now, when I bake, the flavor just isn't the same without Black Walnuts! They are a mess to hull and dry but worth it for the flavor!

    Knowing how to crack them is the secret. That was always my job when I was at home. Hickory nuts were the ones I hated. There is no secret to cracking them. To me English walnuts have not flavor at all. The black ones are so flavorful and are my favorites Those and pecans.

    Your recipe sounds delicious. Will have to see if walnut flavoring is available in my area.
