Also my personal favorite!:wub:

Sure, could change it to the color of the nut...white walnut? 

 

Can I be your guy's popcorn holder? I'll sit in the middle with it in my lap, xxxtra movie butter flavor🍿


Why do I have a feeling there’s going to be a hole in the popcorn bucket?

I am with you there— though probably have pistachios ranked slightly ahead of cashews (and pistachio is probably my favorite ice cream).

 

i would add pecans to the mix too—especially candied pecans! 

French vanilla and pistachio favorite ice creams for moi. Haven't tried candied pecans, but I'll give it a try.

Peanuts are not nuts but legumes despite name " Ground Nut Legume".  I leaned a lot about peanuts in high school in research project on George Washington Carver.  They are not even called peanuts in other countries unless on imports from US.

 

My list:

  • Hazel nut - very heart healthy and great mixed in chocolate.
  • Cacao nut - used to make chocolate
  • Almond nut - raw (very good sliced in salads) and roasted (Tamari or hickory smoke my favorites)
  • Coconut - yes it is a fruit and a nut
  • Macadamia nuts - had fresh ones in Hawaii and there is a difference

You might know them as hazelnuts. When I was a kid, my parents would buy bags of mixed nuts, still in the shells. The mix included almonds, walnuts, filberts, Brazil nuts, pecans, and maybe something else.

 

In my house, those were decoration, not unlike 'indian corn'.

Yeah, my mom mixed them into the Thanksgiving centerpiece too, but eventually we ate them.

1. Cashews

2. Pistachios (what happened to the red ones?)

3. Almonds (wasabi soy but lightly salted is cool)

4. Hazelnuts 

5. Walnuts (but only in muffins or bread)

The ones that use to be dyed red came from Greece, Syria or Iran. They used to dye them because they'd get blemishes on the shell. Almost all of the pistachio's consumed in the U.S now come from California and they dry them before the shells get blemished.

Pistachio

Cashew

Almond

Don't be a db....legumes count.

 

I love pistachios.  The problem is they are expensive and I eat like 100 of them each time.  I eat it like sunflower seeds where I put the shell in my mouth, crack it open with my teeth and get the nut in my mouth....spit out the shell.   Of course the really difficult shells, I break it open with my fingers....I am not wasting a good nut.

 

What nuts do you guys like?

 

I like that you made a serious thread, just to make a double entendre about nuts in your mouth.

Almonds.  Fresh from the shell.

 

Anyone else remember this scene from Best in Show?

 

 

 

Came here for this.  I used to do this to make my kids laugh, and now my 5 year old will recite the whole thing.
