Black Walnut Pie

Ever tried black walnuts?  Growing up in the hollow, we'd often gather these along with hickory nuts for our winter baking or just for snacks.  They are an acquired taste and much different than plain English walnuts.  This pie is similar to pecan pie recipes and definitely worth a try.


  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup black walnuts, chopped
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1¼ cups dark corn syrup
Make crust for 2 pies and line medium size pie plates. Sprinkle the walnuts over the crusts and then mix in the filling. The eggs must be well beaten before adding the sugar gradually. Then fold in flour, corn syrup and 1½ cups of water. Bake in very hot oven (450 degrees) for three minutes and then reduce to medium (350 degrees) for 30 or 40 minutes.
