All over the world, walnuts have been toasted, chopped, and ground to enhance, enrich, and thicken sauces, soups, salads, stews, and many other delicacies, some, no doubt, yet to be invented. As an ingredient in cooking, walnuts have a way of making all kinds of foods special.

To help inspire you, we’d like to share just a few of the delicious recipes for “wal-nutty” dishes that have been created by our own Barton family culinary connoisseurs.
