Since our wedding at the beautiful Anderson Barngrover family walnut ranch in California, I have been inspired to create a recipe using Walnuts.
As well as being very tasty, walnuts are good for you. They help you to feel better and look better too! Recent research has show walnuts have more antioxidants than any other popular nut, as well as healthy fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. Walnuts are also a delicious source of omega 3 essential fatty acids. A quarter cup of walnuts provides 90% of the recommended daily allowance of these protective fats.
With the 3 bags of walnuts that dad sent us from the ranch, I made honey-cinnamon walnut butter for the first Manhattan Community Swap myself and my friend organized (Please check us out!) I am very happy to tell you that my walnut butter did very well, and I have recieved some great feed back. I name this recipe the Anderson Walnut butter, dedicating it to my wonderful Anderson family.
- 2 cups shelled walnuts
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tablespoon of Olive oil
- 2 tablespoon of water
- 6 tablespoon of honey
- Pinch of salt
- Put walnuts in a food processor fitted with the regular cutting blade. Process the nuts on liquify-whip setting. After about 30 seconds it will begin to resemble graham cracker crumbs.
- Add seasonings to the mix and adjust to personal taste.
- Continue processing for another 2 minutes ( or 1 minute for a crunchier texture,)
- Keep walnut butter covered in the refrigerator.
