Hammons Walnuts Buying Stations

In 1946, grocer Ralph Hammons noticed a lot of wild Black Walnuts growing all over Southwest Missouri. Seeing the future potential of this local crop, he bought a cracking machine and began buying Black Walnuts from the hardworking Ozarks people who gathered them each fall. Over 70 years later, Hammons Products Company is still family-owned. The tradition has been carried on by Ralph’s son, Dwain, and now grandson, Brian as well as great-grandson, Jacob, making four generations of Hammons entrepreneurial leaders.

Description

Hammons Products Company continues to buy Black Walnuts the same way Ralph did in 1946. Coming to the company from over 215 local buying stations across 11 states, the efforts of thousands of people working together has helped make the American Black Walnut an integral piece of Midwest culture and a staple ingredient in many sweet and savory recipes.

  • Wild, Hand-Harvested Black Walnuts, 8-ounce bag
  • Fancy Large, largest and most popular size, great for recipes that require a larger nutDue to the nature of the inside shell, Black Walnuts do not come in whole or halves. These are the largest pieces of the Black Walnut when we process and therefore are sold as Large Pieces which are much smaller than Halves that you see with English Walnuts.

  • 7 grams of protein in one-ounce serving (more protein than any other tree nut), Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher, and Gluten-Free

Benefits of Hammons Walnuts Buying Stations

Black walnuts have been a key ingredient in my family recipes for 200 years, six generations. My great-grandparents had black walnut tree groves on their NE Kansas cattle farms. Hammon Black Walnuts are wonderful. The best I have ever found. And the price is great. Have you ever tried to shuck black walnuts? ‘Not easy’ does not describe it. It is hard, messy work. Also, I was not expecting the size of the pieces. Hammon’s fancy pieces are ‘huge’ for black walnuts. Really HUGE ! They are fresh and full of rich flavor. Someone wrote they found them stale. These are NOT stale. Far from it. Black walnuts have a different texture than the nuts one is accustomed to eating. Black walnuts aren’t really ‘crunchy’. I’m baking up a storm: cakes, pies, cookies, stuffings, plus salads and ice cream. I baked my Lady Baltimore cake last weekend. It’s stuffed full of Hammon’s Black Walnuts plus one pound of Maraschino cherries and frosted with 7-minute frosting. This is my favorite cake and a family tradition for over 100 years. Thank you, Hammon’s and Amazon Prime. Mary
