The walnuts are rich in oil, and are widely eaten, both fresh and in cookery. Walnut oil is expensive and consequently is used sparingly; most often in salad dressing.
Walnuts are also an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and have been proven to be helpful in lowering cholesterol.
They are a delicious way to add extra nutrition, flavour and crush to a meal.
Due to their high polyunsaturated fat content, walnuts are extremely perishable and care should be taken in their storage.
Shelled walnuts should be stores in an airtight container and placed in the refrigerator, where they will keep for six months, or the freezer, where they will last for one year.
Unshelled walnuts should preferably be stored in the refrigerator, although as long as you keep them in a cool, dry, dark place, they will stay fresh for up to six months.
