I’ve been told that black walnuts were used a lot in Native American recipes and as a healing agent. Black walnuts hulls, taken internally have been used as a home remedy to treat pinworms, ringworms, a laxative, jock itch, and skin yeast infections. A study in Phytotherapy Research found that juglone from black walnuts showed significant inhibition of RNase H activty in the HIV virus. I think black walnuts are a super food. Black walnuts have a very dominate bold taste. Black walnuts are earthy tasting, bittersweet and thick. Black walnuts are native to 15 states including Mississippi.
½ pound fresh firm jalapeno peppers, 1 (8oz. package) cream cheese, 1 (4 oz. package) of black walnuts, finely chopped. Slice peppers lengthwise, remove seeds. Spread cream cheese on jalapeno halves. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top of cream cheese. Chill for approximately 45 minutes. Serve.
