Exotic Red Danube Walnut & Maple Spiced Truffle

Exotic Red Danube Walnut & Maple Spiced Truffle

A lost piece of culture is given new life.

The red Danube Walnut is regarded as a tradition in Mostviertel. In comparison to other nuts, walnuts have much greater levels of omega-3 fatty acids, making them one of the finest plant sources of protein. Walnuts are a type of shell fruit and have a 50–70% fat and 10–20% protein composition. Even more so, the red Danube (also known as the rote Donaunuss) has a 10% higher fat content. They are regarded as the best form of brain fuel. The red Danube combines these healthy qualities, including a mild and delicate taste.

The tree appears to be a typical walnut tree. You have to break it open to see the differences. The nut kernel’s skin can be anything from red to purple in color. The flavors vary greatly as well. Red Danubes are not bitter and have a wonderful flavor and fragrance. There are currently very few remaining specimens. You’re going to love these four ingredient treats. These easy to make truffles are packed with protein, Omega-3s, and fiber!
