Walnuts are well known for enhancing brain function and consist of numerous nutrients such as antioxidants, Vitamin E, and Omega-3 fats. Californian Walnuts are well known around the globe for their great taste and vibrate color. Walnuts come to make a great addition to smoothies and baked goods to load up all the nutrients and flavor into delicacies. Walnuts can be enjoyed by themselves or mixed with other dried fruits and nuts to help enhance the flavor and appeal of the mixes.

Walnuts provide healthy fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals — and that’s just the beginning of how they may support your health.
In fact, there’s so much interest in this one nut that for the past 50 years, scientists and industry experts have gathered annually at the University of California, Davis, for a walnut conference discussing the latest walnut health research.
The most common variety of walnut is the English walnut, which is also the most studied type.
Here are 13 science-based health benefits of walnuts.

The goal of drying walnuts for storage is to reduce the moisture within the nuts to prevent mold growth. When properly dried, the nuts inside should have a nice “snap” and not be rubbery. At this point, the walnuts should hold for up to three years in the shell in cool, dry conditions.

It's recommended that you wear gloves to get the nutmeat out of the walnut shell so that you don't stain your hands. To get the husk off, you can use a heavy hammer or your foot to shear off the husk. Next, you're going to wash the unshelled nuts in a bucket. Soaking nuts helps to remove excess juice and debris and is an excellent way to check and see if there are nuts in the shell. If there isn't a nut, the unfilled shell will float to the top of your bucket.

Walnut growers set the stage for producing a safe, wholesome product by following established “Best Practices” in the Orchards known as Good Agricultural Practices (GAP’s). During development, walnuts are uniquely protected by nature. Unlike most tree nuts, walnuts have both a protective hull and shell, which encase and help protect the kernel. Throughout the shelling process, rules established by the FDA called Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s), are stringently followed. These practices ensure walnuts are produced under the cleanest manufacturing conditions.
