The best local walnuts are lightly toasted to bring out their warm full flavor and subtle aroma. Try it drizzled over hot steamed green beans or asparagus. Use it in a vinaigrette with a bit of Dijon mustard to dress a mixed salad topped with thinly sliced smoked duck breast or a salad with pears and Roquefort. Very nice with lentils. Can be used in pastry applications.
