Black Walnut Orange Sauce Recipe

Spread the love

This holiday season, we are making and gifting some amazing fresh preserves with a little inspiration from Ball Canning and Jarden Home Brands! Be sure to check out Ball Canning’s 25 Days of Making and Giving for more wonderful holiday gift ideas throughout the month of December! #sponsored

As I look back over the years, the gifts that have always meant the most to me are those that were hand-made.  I cherish every cleverly crafted ornament my grandmother created, continue to wrap myself in the warmth of the crocheted blankets my mother lovingly stitched, and treasure the memories of holiday candies, pies and cookies they each gifted us every year.

My wish has always been to continue this tradition and since my artistic talents are best put to use in the kitchen, each year I enjoy gifting hand-crafted goods that incorporate the bounty and blessings of our farm along with the amazing flavors of the holiday season.

The Black Walnut Orange Sauce (recipe below) I created this year was inspired by the abundance of nuts we harvested and the sweet memories of the crates of fresh oranges my grandparents used to ship us from Florida each Christmas.  With a little bit of flavor enhancements (maple syrup and spiced rum,) this sauce beautiful pairs with any fowl or fish dish and is equally grand served atop waffles, ice cream or pound cake for a sweet and savory dessert.

    that sounds really unique. before looking at the recipe I couldn’t figure out if this was something more for a main course or dessert. It makes sense now and looks really good over a simple pound cake or ice cream

      The best thing about it is it’s a great duo-purpose sauce that’s equally good with a main course or dessert.

    I love hand made gifts too! Someone once made me jam and put it in a cute mason jar and I so treasured it. Last year my niece in law made me a beautiful blanket and pillow and it too was my favorite thing. Walnut Orange sauce sounds amazing!
