Great episode, Dave & McGee kick ass!
I went by the Alemany Farmers Market (http://www.yelp.com/biz/alemany-farmers-market-san-francisco) this weekend to pick up (Harold’s) walnuts. I only found two vendors selling walnuts, but they were both selling
walnuts from Ferrarri Farms (http://www.ferrarifarms.com/). One of the stands labeled them “White” walnuts. Wikipedia seems to disagree (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juglans_cinerea).
They were selling three typed of shelled walnuts; regular, organic, and “sunburned”. There was no distinguishable differences between the regular and organic. Both nuts were mild, slightly sweet, only the slightest hint of bitterness if inhaled deeply, but overall underwhelming, very mild. The “sunburned” walnuts, despite the vendors insistence that they were “sweeter”, were very definitely the same nuts but with a deeper definitely more tannic flavor, not unpleasant, but still underwhelming.
I’m not sure Harold’s nut guy was there, it was a rainy weekend, the market was not quite half full. I’m also suspicious that I paid $1.50/lb., the Yelp review above mentions $3.00/lb. walnuts.
Thank you for the excellent podcast,
Seth, Keep me posted on the nuts.
