These Preserved Walnuts are hand picked from the tree while their shell is still soft and unformed. These fresh, green, baby walnuts are cured whole by a low temperature simmer in sugar cane sugar, water, and a touch of lemon juice. They taste of allspice, cinnamon, and clove, but none of these have been added, this is the flavor of the walnut. This incredible, unique preserve is the perfect garnish for pate, ice cream, game dishes, cocktails and foie gras.
Suggestions: Try complimenting these Preserved Walnuts with some Manchego Cheese for some added flavor.
The perfect cheese compliment…the superlative cocktail ingredient…100% Natural Artisanal Preserves from the Ararat Valley of Armenia.
About Harvest Song
Harvest Song preserves begin with fruit grown in the fertile volcanic soil of the Ararat Valley in Armenia, believed to be the landing site of Noah’s ark. Farms in this area have no need for fertilizer or pesticides and benefit from plentiful spring water and sunlight. Each small batch of fruit is slowly simmered and allowed to thicken without adding pectin – an ingredient used in making conventional jellies. This old world methodology concentrates the fruit’s natural sugar reducing the need for added sugar. Only fruit, a little sugar, and lemon juice are used in making these 100% natural preserves which are naturally lower in calories than conventional jams and preserves.
Harvest Song Ventures, based in New York, a partnership of James Tufenkian and Sylvia Tirakian, is a specialty food company that imports fresh, natural gourmet food products directly from Armenia. They cater to discriminating consumers who demand convenience and natural ingredients without sacrificing taste. More and more consumers are educated about health, fitness, and the environment. They’re looking to satisfy their passion for fresh, exotic foods with choices that can help them stay young, slim, and healthy.
