I would have to say 'pine nuts' are by far my favorite followed by 'Brazil nuts'

Any other nut likers (lets call ourselves nuters) out there? And which nuts?

Roasted cashews is my favorite. Second would be roasted almonds lightly seasoned with salt or honey.

Cashews and pecans are coming down the stretch ... in a photofinish I would give it to pecans. That was a very exciting race!

Macadamias are my absolute favourite... but yes, they are fattening.

Love cashews as well... and pistachios.... and roasted almonds...

As snack: Another vote for salted cashews. Cannot beat that.

As sweets: Walnut, straight up, plain and simple. Especially if I don't have to peel them myself.

Do you peel them? I would 'shell' them. But that's just me. :eek:

Well, I really should have said that I didn't have to crack them, as that is the direct translation of the Norwegian word for shelling nuts... ;)

English is hard... :eek: ;)

...although i try not to eat brazil nuts as the brazil nut tree cannot be grown outside of the rainforests, and is it's own eco-microcosm, sustaining so much around it, quite fascinating really.
I didn't know that. I will try to dial back on my Brazil nut consumption now that I know.

And cashews seem to be the nut at the top of the pile so far, so salted or unsalted?

I never knew Macadamia nuts were such a big deal. I'll have to try them again.

Cashews though......THAT I understand. In Canada, I buy 500 grams of cashews for around $4.50 USD, although most places will sell them for more. The price isn't bad, eh? ;)

In Oz, it's a "bit" more expensive, and I can't find them for cheaper. :eek:

I'm a macadamia fan too, got hooked in Hawaii. But right now I'm in a peanut phase, honey roasted.

Don't like nuts by themselves... but I'll always go for these specific chocolate-covered macadamia nuts because the chocolate is dark (thank goodness) and there are little 'crispies' inside so it's a 'crunch' type of goodie. Mmm. They have loads of them @ Maui's Costco.

Light scratches in french polished furniture can be fixed by rubbibg with a walnut, shelled obviously.
