These walnuts have been hand harvested in the Périgord and are from the Franquette variety. They are granted ‘AOP Noix du Périgord’ label. This is a quality label which ensures the production and the transformation of walnuts within the geographical area of origin. Each walnut is opened manually in order to remove the superb kernels. They make a perfect snack. If slightly toasted on a dry pan they can be added to a green leaf salad seasoned with a walnut oil dressing. Perfect for confectionary as well.
