So whats your favourite nut?

Bit of a quandary for me as a Brazil isn't actually a nut. But then again most nuts we eat aren't actually nuts.

  • Now you are confusing me...

    Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, macadamias, peanuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts are all technically not really nuts.

    Hazelnuts, hickory nuts, chestnuts and acorns are some examples of true nuts.
  • honey roasted cashews
  • Any kind of cashew for me.
  • My right one.
  • macadamias
  • Pistachio and anything Pistachio related. Icecream, milkshake, and Pistachio Cream with chocolate cake is my favourite dessert.
  • pistachio and peanuts. Love me some salty balls.

  • Cashews and pistachios but I like them all except for macadamias.

    Almond butter is tons better than peanut butter but sadly us much more expensive.

    What's the difference then?

  • A true nut, botanically speaking, is a hard-shelled pod that contains both the fruit and seed of the plant, where the fruit does not open to release the seed to the world. Some examples of botanical nuts are chestnuts, hazelnuts, and acorns.

    Most of what we think of as nuts aren't really nuts at all, they're drupes! eg peaches, plums, cherries, mangoes, olives, dates, coffee, coconut, cashes, pistachio, brazil, walnuts, almonds, and pecans. A drupe is a type of fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a shell (what we sometimes call a pit) with a seed inside. The ones we think of as nuts are the drupes in which we eat the seed inside the pit instead of the fruit!

    Peanuts are not nuts—they are members of the legume family, hence related to peas. The shells are pods, and the peanuts are seeds.
