Store red walnuts in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Red walnuts can be used similarly to English walnuts in most recipes. However, because their beautiful color is what makes them so special, we recommend using them in dishes where they are visually prominent. Try sprinkling them on salads, baking them in cookies, or using them to decorate cakes.
While you can certainly chop or grind them as you would plain walnuts, because their color is only on the outermost surface, they will often be prettier if left in large pieces.
In sweet applications, walnuts pair well with non-tropical fruits, dried stone fruits, ginger, coffee, other nuts, nougat, chocolate (especially dark chocolate), maple syrup & maple sugar, mascarpone, honey, cream, cinnamon, or bourbon.
For savory dishes, try pairing walnuts with poultry (especially chicken or pheasant), lean fish, eggplant, carrots, and/or shrimp.
