Nuts

Anybody here love nuts? I love shelled pistachios, cashews, shelled sunflower seeds, pine nuts, macadamias, pecans and really good peanuts like Whitley's. I also love nut spreads like cashew nut butter. I just bought a pistachio nut butter online that is so yummy! I also put nuts in my meals like cashew chicken or vegetarian spaghetti with pine nuts. Anyone here share my passion?

    I have never met a nut I didn't like.

    That is why I enjoy this forum so much.

    Yup, I love nuts too, with the exception of Brazil and Black Walnuts. Cashews are my absolute favorites. I could live on a full diet of nuts and be a happy woman.


    (patiently waits for either Grampy, llee or Jim to come up with some cauliflower black walnut concoction for me to savor)

    I love all sorts of nuts especially brazils, cashews, peanuts, pistachios and almonds. Not too keen on the bitter-ish tang of the walnut though...

    I think Pecans are my favorite...toasted salted, or Pralines or in a pie or on ice cream. For Chocolate-dipped, It would be Macademia's. I enjoy almost all, but those two would top the list.
    Want a passage on the Pecan, Find a copy of Mischner's TEXAS. Everytime I read that I HAVE to go find some of those nuts to snack on.

    Black walnuts. We used to go out and pick them up and then clean them. It is quite a chore, they have an outer hull that is green on the outside and black on the inside and nasty.

    Mom used them to make Black walnut divinity. Oh was it good! The sweetness of the divinity and the strong taste of the walnuts were a great match.

    Pecans tie me to the Georgia side of my family. A mature pecan grove is a sight to see.

    A favorite nut is just the best of a great field of choice. I can't get behind the black walnut much though - I want to, but the difficulty extracting such small, bitter goods is too much of a depressing life lesson.

    I managed to impress a lady asking what to do w/ leftover pine nuts once - she thought I had class. I shall have to bring up the topic more often.

    Anybody here like peanut brittle?

    The Chinese use whole roast peanuts mixed in with some kind of thick gloopy molasses syrup and then spread out quickly on a flat surface, left to cool and then broken into pieces. Your hands gotta work fast to spread it out before it sets.

    Oh yum!!!! Kids love 'em!!!

    I, too, love nuts! In fact, I just bought some Tamari roasted mixed nuts this morning from the local health food store.
    I was reading an article, not long ago, saying that eating one ounce of nuts a day cuts your risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest by %60. So nuts are not only delicious, they're very healthful. I could also almost live on them alone.

    Cashews and pecans lie at the top of my list. Has anybody here ever tried Planter's honey-roasted cashews? If you like cashews, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven. The only place I've found them is in Target stores.

    I love all kinds of nuts. I remember as a kid one of the things I looked for every Christmas was a box of red pistachios tucked in the toe of my stocking. I love Black walnut ice cream. Still pick up fresh roasted peanuts whenever I can.

    I love pistachios. There are 2 species of eaters. One shells and eats as they go, the other shells and piles up to deliver to the mouth a solid rush of nut heaven. It reveals personality traits. Read into it what you will.

    Pistachio's are a major crop in our former corner of the Mojave. Lots of Nut Groves. But If you want to see variety , take a ride up US 99 in the Central Valley of California. The Almonds and walnuts and various fruit trees all bloom at roughly the same time. Hundreds of miles of them!! It is a beautiful sight to see.

    Big as** cashews in Brazil at about 80 cents a pound. Nuts are friends AND food. Repeat, clothier.

    Salted Cashews down the neck of a glass Pepsi bottle to the point that the salt almost makes the Pepsi Fizz over. Then eat and drink at the same time. When was the last time you did that??? Man, Man, Man, It just ain't the same in a Plastic Pepsi Bottle!

    I hve been down the valley when the Almonds are blooming. I noticed the beehives at each end of the rows of the trees. The olafactory results are overwhelming and the return on the bee investments are apparently very good. I love the valley in the spring.

    Thanks "Mayor" for reminding me of the wonderful trips I have had up I-5

    I can blow through half a bag of pistachios in one sitting. Mind you, this isn't a feat that I'm proud of...[|)]

    Wow, that was poetic. I heard it in a Southern Baptist preacher voice as I read it. (and I'm not being sarcastic, I swear...that was beautiful).

    I am famous for my oatmeal cookies even though my recipe is the one from the Quaker Oats box. They come out crunchy rather than chewy. But the “secret” may be in the pecans.

    Any time I make cookies with pecans, I at least double the called-for amount of nuts. It makes all the difference.

    I just ground up about a cup of Macadamia's and coated my chicken with soy flour and egg and rolled it in the macadamia crush. It is frying now while I watch my Colts get crushed.
