Monday's gale force winds and torrential rain have brought down walnuts by the barrow-load. Above is just a small sample of our newly gathered 2010 stock, which will easily last us through to next autumn. I love walnuts, and eat several each day (highly recommended for good health).
Walnuts contain Linoleic Acid (an Omega 3 fatty acid) which can help reduce Cholesterol, and also has an anti-inflammatory action. They contain Iron, Selenium, Vitamin E, and Zinc. It is also said that eating walnuts can reduce the risk of heart disease (what doesn't). So, all in all a pretty nifty nut. Doctor Cro says 'Eat 6 walnuts a day'.
