Black Walnut Giveaway and the Best Banana Muffin Recipe!

Last fall, in an effort to raise funds for our family to go overseas for six weeks this spring, we decided to gather nearly every black walnut on our farm and a lot from the surrounding area.

These nuts are naturally grown, with no chemicals or sprays. They are gathered, cracked and preserved by hand, from the hills and hollers of Tennessee. Thanks to resealable bags, these black walnut pieces can now be stored unopened in a cool, dry location for years! They do need to be kept in the refrigerator or freezer once opened.

Black walnuts have a strong rich flavor, are absolutely delicious and very nutritious. They can be eaten as a snack, in hot or cold cereal, fruit or vegetable salads, your favorite muffins, breads, cakes, cookies and desserts. Just add them to your favorite recipes and enjoy the delightful flavor.

We are giving away an 8 ounce package to one winner.  If you would like to enter the drawing, please enter through this rafflecopter.

  1. These look so delicious and I can just imagine the fragrance and moist beautiful and rear Black Walnuts. I have Celiac and eat mostly “raw’ but your recipe peaked my interest Thank you for this fun post and for the opportunity to enter your give away. Thank you.

  2. Mmmmmm… walnuts are amazing! We love to soak and dry them for many uses ~ breads, cereal, trail mix, paleo treats, alone!

    1. If ever you have a surplus, I would gladly pay postage to have some sent to me. I had found a woman in Georgia who had pecans one year, but that hasn’t happened since. Hubby was thrilled to have fresh pecans that Christmas..he is the nut eater in the family!
