Q: I do research on low-risk and organic pesticides, and as part of our data collection we harvest 110 walnuts from each of our sample trees. So, now the 7 people in my lab are sharing 48,000 walnuts (about 1000 pounds)! Aside from giving some away for the holidays, roasting them, and putting them in cookies, what can I do to make sure this bounty doesn't go to waste? Sent by Lauren Editor: Lauren, wow! That is a lot of walnuts. We would certainly recommend candying and giving away a lot of them for gifts, but you can also freeze them for future baking projects. Readers, any good ideas for Lauren's walnut harvest?   Related: ight Now: Walnut Harvest! (Image: Kathryn Hill)
