Miso - Black Walnut
Black walnuts are earthy and robust, with a flavor that is unlike other walnuts and difficult to describe. The closest comparison would be a truffle, for its fruity mushroom flavor and its divisive appeal. Black walnuts are traditionally used in baked goods like bread, pie, & cookies; recipes abound for their use in creative sweets, and it’s a good place to start. If you’re already familiar with the flavor of the nut, the miso can be folded into a chunky rice pilaf, pesto, or wilted greens.
