    Default Nuts to you, too!

    Terwilliger has a boatload of pecans and I have access to some black
    walnuts. Anything special (I'm kind of assuming baked goods) I should
    consider for their use?

    There is a salad from Papalinos (local) joint

    http://www.papalinos.com/restaurant_menu.htm

    "Chicken Insalata
    Mixed greens, chicken, walnuts, raisins, celery in our Italian dressing.

    The dressing is a thick Balsamic, and the chicken is "twice grilled" or once
    cooked then grilled and crispy on the Outside.

    Not sure if you're into making homemade ice cream, but black walnut is one
    of my favorite flavors. I'd also crush them up and use them as a coating
    for fish or make nut butter. They're also good with homegrown MN wild rice.

    As an aside, shucking black walnuts with my grandpa is one of my favorite
    childhood memories.

    I have the output from several black walnut trees.
    They're not much useful, unless you believe in
    quack medicine.

    http://www.ncahf.org/articles/c-d/clark.html

    If you want some, it's my understanding I can't
    ship them outside of California, so you're out
    of luck.

    And they stain your hands with a persistence
    comparable to silver nitrate.

    I love them in brownies and fudge. I also use them in my fruitcake.

    Cracking them myself with a rock on a concrete slab is one of my
    earliest memories. I loved those things. That concrete slab is still
    there, or at least was less than a year ago. It was for an LP gas
    tank, but my parents had gotten a larger tank, which needed a larger
    slab. My favorite nuts are hickories, but the squirrels get damned
    near every one.

    I make fake albondigas with walnuts, which were surprisingly good. I
    won't call it albondigas soup, because it isn't a meatball, so we call
    it nutball soup. Nantucket cranberry pie. Brownies. Granola, keeps
    forever in an airtight container. Baked oatmeal. Regular oatmeal.
    Coatings on fish. Apple cakes. Coffee cakes. Sticky buns. Candied
    and added to salads. Toasted and added to shredded brussels sprouts.
    Pecan pie. Brittle. Chex mix. Cinnamon nuts. Spicy nuts. Cookies,
    oatmeal, chocolate chips, whatever you like.

    More ideas: Some sort of pilaf. Candy. Caramel nut sauce. Nut
    butter.

    Not much useful? I've always understood that they're a prized
    commodity. Maybe because you get to stain your hands with them.

    Thanks, Jinx. I'm liking the wild rice idea. How about on a cheese
    ball?

    The first week in November is almost behind us, so I would start baking
    for the holidays and freeze it. Black walnuts would be great in brownies
    or cookies. I would use the pecans in a Cherry Nut Cake, but you could
    use walnuts in that recipe, too.

    Cherry Nut Cake

    1 pound candied cherries, whole or chopped
    1 pound pecans, chopped
    1 pound dates, chopped
    1/2 pound candied pineapple

    Batter:
    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    4 eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

    Mix fruits and nuts with 1/2 cup flour and toss. Beat eggs. Add sugar,
    remaining flour salt and baking powder. Beat slightly. Combine fruit-nut
    mixture with batter. Mix well. Bake in a tube pan lined with parchment
    paper. Bake for 90 minutes at 325 Degrees.

    Thanks, Becca. It looks good. Curious question: Do you line only the
    bottom of the tube pan with the parchment or the sides also?

    Oh yes! I haven't made cherry nut bread in a while, but that is
    nice, too. Like banana bread or zucchini bread, only cherry and nuts.

    I've never done black walnuts on a cheese ball, but I'd definitely try it.

    I only lined the bottom of the pan, with just a little going up the
    sides. That nutbread recipe is my favorite.

    Gee, I thought no carbs and sugars... this makes things so much
    easier. There are only two acceptable ways to preserve lotsa
    pecans... with chawklit and sticky buns.

    Nut butter rules. I tend to post that a lot.

    I thought black walnuts were used as a dye at one point so I can believe
    it. The shells can also be smashed and used as a stuffing for old
    fashioned furniture.

    The wood - Gun stocks.

    The squirrels - Open fire, reshly skinned, sprinkled with
    Worchestershire.

    You can make pralines (candy) from the pecans. Lots of recipes on the net.
