    yes on boiled peanuts - my husband makes the best - perfect salt level

    I also like cracked nuts (can't believe this thread has not disintegrated yet and had the red lock put on it)

    slivered almonds in a garlic oil with broccoli (or cauliflower or mushrooms, whatever isn't moldy in the fridge) over pasta is a family favorite quick meal

    walnuts in your pesto is also a nice change from pine nuts

    WHAT!!! Such a shame.


    I like peanuts. Wherther they are a nut or not... I like tomatoes too whether they are a fruit or not.
    I can't eat very many nuts allergies.
    Really bad - Walnuts
    Bad - Pecans
    The rest just cause a bit of a problem.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

Which reminds me that I haven't had a Brazil nut in probably 20 years.

    I'd say my favorites are walnuts and hazelnuts... as long as the hazelnut is in Nutella form. But I really haven't met a nut I didn't like.

    I love almonds. The wasabi ones and the smokehouse jalapeno ones...mmmm. I keep them at my desk at all times. I also like pecans but I'm spoiled by Georgia pecans so now the ones at the store just don't cut it.

    I have always wondered what fresh-roasted American chestnuts taste(d) like, seeing as they were common as dirt until the blight fungus showed up in NYC in 1903, wiping out nearly all of the trees by about WWII. There are some chestnut tree plantations in areas well away from the species' blighted 'native' areas in the eastern USA, such as in California, but chestnuts remain rare.

    That said, pecans are my fav, followed by almonds and pistachios.

    We get or chest nuts from some farm. They come dehydrated, but taste like fresh chestnuts. They're best in the turkey stuffing. I can always look up the name if you need it (my wife takes care of all my nut cravings - including getting a pile of nuts every fall for me to devour).

    Me either until I moved to SC from Oregon. I've always thought that brazil nuts taste a little rank.
