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

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………….

Oh Nuts……….

Eating nuts on a regular basis may improve your health in many ways, such as by reducing diabetes and heart disease risk, as well as cholesterol and triglyceride levels. This nutritious high-fiber treat may even aid weight loss — despite its high calorie count. Almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and pecans also appear to be quite heart healthy. And peanuts — which are technically not a nut, but a legume, like beans — seem to be relatively healthy.

Storing 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.

One of America’s Favorites – Caramel Apple

Caramel Apple

Caramel apples or toffee apples are whole apples covered in a layer of caramel. They are created by dipping or rolling apples-on-a-stick in hot caramel, sometimes then rolling them in nuts or other small savories or confections, and allowing them to cool. When these additional ingredients, such as nut toppings, are added, the caramel apple can be called a taffy apple.

Bags of caramels are commonly sold during the fall months in America for making caramel apples.
For high-volume production of caramel apples, a sheet of caramel can be wrapped around the apple, followed by heating the apple to melt the caramel evenly onto it. This creates a harder caramel that is easier to transport but more difficult to eat. Caramel apple production at home usually involves melting pre-purchased caramel candies for dipping or making a homemade caramel from ingredients like corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla. Homemade caramel generally results in a softer, creamier coating.

In recent years, it has become increasingly popular to decorate caramel apples for holidays like Halloween. Methods used to do this include applying sugar or salt to softened caramel, dipping cooled, hardened apples in white or milk chocolate, or painting designs onto finished caramel apples with white chocolate colored with food coloring.

Classically, the preferred apples for use in caramel apples are tart, crisp apples such as Granny Smith or Fuji apples. Softer, grainy-textured apples can also be used, but are not preferred.

In addition to caramel apples, manufacturers and consumers have started to coat apples in chocolate syrup, peanut butter, etc. and adding toppings such as crushed peanuts, pretzels, mini M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, coconut flakes, and mini chocolate chips. Candy apple shops and candy apple bars have started to pop up in bigger cities, at weddings and parties to allow people to enjoy the apple with the dipping sauces and toppings they prefer.
