Walnuts: a treasure chest of benefits for our health

Walnuts are among the dried fruit most appreciated by us Italians. They are the fruit of the walnut tree and has its roots in the Middle East. The harvest takes place during the month of December, but it is a product that is available during all months of the year.

Walnuts are rich in Omega-3, polyunsaturated acids, proteins, simple carbohydrates, fiber and mineral salts such as calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium, and vitamin E. They therefore have multiple properties, which make them a versatile ingredient both in the kitchen and for our health. In addition to being an excellent source of energy, they are precious for our entire organism. In fact, they promote the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system, preserve the aging of cells and are a good ally for those who have to manage type 2 diabetes.

Walnuts therefore help to:

  • manage blood pressure and hypertension
  • cleanse the liver
  • counteract the formation of free radicals
  • promote good quality sleep
  • face physical effort with the right energy.

Since they provide a good amount of calories, experts recommend consuming 3 per day.

Why choose our variety of nuts?

The variety we grow on our farm comes from the nearby Campania region. In fact, ours are Sorrento walnuts in shell , the most prized on the Sorrento peninsula. To the eye, the shell has a light brown color and is easy to break, while keeping the inside intact. Their kernel, or the fruit inside the shell, crunches when bitten but is at the same time very tender. Finally, the consistency on the palate is very pleasant because it is not very oily.

How can you store nuts?

We recommend some solutions for storing walnuts in shell for a few months. You can place them in a wicker basket, in an airtight glass container or in a cotton bag. The important thing is that, whatever the container, they are in a cool and dry environment, therefore away from any source of humidity. Finally, remember to check your nuts from time to time to make sure none have blackened or been damaged by insects or pests. If so, bin them to prevent them from ruining even the healthy nuts.

How can you enjoy them?

Like almonds , walnuts are also the favorite hunger-busting snack for those who care about their health. You can consume them alone or accompany them with yogurt and salads. For those looking for tastier delicacies, our culinary tradition has countless proposals. From appetizers, to first courses, to second courses, to desserts and sauces, walnuts are suitable for satisfying our meals. However, let's mention a famous dish from Tuscia, which perhaps few people know about. It is served at the end of the meal on Christmas Day: it is pasta (or macaroni) with walnuts. It is a pastry timbale seasoned with walnuts, chocolate, sugar and cinnamon: each village in the area, however, has its own local variant. In short, another excellent reason to visit the Tuscia region!
