2018-2019 season update: Due to the warmer winter temperatures this season, we are unable to tap our trees at this time. If we get a cold snap, we make a very limited supply of syrup this season & will let those on our email list know first. Thank you for your understanding and check back for 2019-2020 season!
Very limited and extremely rare, this 100% pure black walnut syrup is made from the sap of black walnut trees in Hood River, OR that has been collected, boiled, and bottled by hand.
Black walnut syrup is quite different than maple syrup. You will find that black walnut has a much sweeter flavor accompanied by a nutty undertone that is definitive of black walnut. Some say it is almost "butterscotch" or "ambrosia" in profile.
Aside from using it for your breakfast, we recommend trying it drizzled over a glass of bourbon, or on vanilla ice cream. Also great for making mixed drinks and tinctures.
Unlike other syrups, our only ingredient is tree sap. No artificial colors, flavors, or additives.
Syrup has been gravity-filtered after boiling to remove coarse particulates, while allowing natural "Sugar sands" to remain (a very healthy mixture of calcium and malic acid produced by the black walnut). As a result, we recommend shaking your syrup before serving.
All containers have been sterilized and bottled at a temperature over 200°F to ensure a long lasting stable product. We do recommend refrigeration after opening to prolong life. Syrup will thicken once refrigerated, but thin when warmed to room temperature. If re-heating in a microwave, remove lid and use small 10 second intervals until desired consistency is achieved.
