What’s the best way to store nuts…..

To preserve the quality of your nuts, keep them away from onions and other high-odor foods. They tend to take on the smell of things around them. Store shelled nuts at room temperature for up to three months. Store shelled or unshelled nuts in the refrigerator for up to six months, or in the freezer for a year or more.

Spiced Pumpkin Pie
This boldly spiced classic pumpkin pie recipe can be made with canned pumpkin puree, a roasted pie pumpkin or roasted squash. Make your own healthy pastry dough or look for a store-bought frozen pie crust without any partially hydrogenated oils………..

Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque
This satisfying vegetarian sweet potato soup is inspired by the flavors of West African peanut soup. We like the added zip of hot green chiles, but they can sometimes be very spicy. It’s best to take a small bite first and add them to taste. Try chopped peanuts and scallions for a different garnish. Serve with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette………..

Slow-Cooker Hot Cider with Brandy
Brew up a batch of warm apple cider with ease in this no-sugar-added drink recipe. The hot toddy stays warm and party-ready in your crock pot all night long……….

Health benefits of walnuts…….

One of the main reasons to eat walnuts is to help keep your heart healthy. Heart health is particularly important for people with diabetes who have an increased risk of heart disease.

If you have diabetes, you know that the foods you eat impact your blood sugar levels in different ways. Walnuts can be considered “diabetes-friendly” because they have less of an effect on blood sugars compared to other foods.

Walnuts are very low in carbohydrate, the nutrient that raises blood sugar levels more so than protein and fat. Plus, the protein, fat, and fiber in walnuts may help to limit the “spike” in blood sugars that can occur after eating (especially eating foods high in carbohydrate).

When buying Walnuts……..

Quality and good walnuts are usually elongated with a thin shell. If the nut is in the peel, then it must be whole without mechanical damage. Buy whole unshredded nuts, since it is better to see what kind of quality it is. They should not be moldy, stained, the color should be smooth and golden.

To store those Walnuts; Store shelled or unshelled walnuts safely in an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place. The refrigerator is a great choice as walnuts will remain fresh for up to three months. Walnuts will absorb odors so it is best to place them at distance from foods with strong odors, such as onions.

Honey-Garlic Chicken Thighs with Carrots and Broccoli
In this easy and healthy dinner recipe, sweet and savory baked honey-garlic chicken thighs come with a side of veggies that cook on the same sheet pan as the chicken. The honey-soy-garlic marinade for the chicken does double duty as an irresistible sauce to drizzle over everything.

If you can’t find small carrots, cut medium carrots in half lengthwise………….

Sweet Potato Bread Pudding with Pecan Praline Sauce
The dessert menu at Brigtsen’s restaurant in New Orleans offers “Bread Pudding du Jour,” which changes with the seasons. This sweet potato version plays well during the holidays………..

Spiced Apple Bread Pudding
This silky apple dessert recipe–a spiced apple bread pudding made with apple cider in place of the usual custard–gets a double hit of apple flavor from both the cider and plenty of sliced tart apples. Mace, the lacy red spice that coats the nutmeg fruit, adds a particularly lovely floral note, but you can substitute nutmeg if you don’t have any mace on hand……………

Breakfast Fruit Bread Pudding
Studded with strawberries, this breakfast recipe is a cross between a baked French toast and a dessert bread pudding. Swap in almost any fruit depending on what’s in season. Although we typically advocate using whole-grain bread, we stuck with challah for this recipe, because the results are so luscious………….
