John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Organic Walnuts
John Sigona’s Dried Fruit & Nut Pick of the Week are Organic Walnuts.
7 oz. Container – $3.99
Our locally grown, California-certified organic walnuts originate from a family-owned ranch in Hollister, California. These excellent quality light halves and pieces are from Gibson Farms, where the owner, Mark Gibson, has been practicing sustainable farming before I knew what the term meant – and that’s a whole lot of years! Mark grows and processes in the most meticulous manner, resulting in the very bests quality.
These raw walnuts are one of the most superb nuts for your health, filled with all kinds of wonderful nutrients. Sub these in a pesto recipe, rather than using pine nuts, as a much less costly option.
