Mixed nuts - does anyone actually like hazelnuts??

Recommended Posts

I used to love hazel nuts, as well as all other nuts. Can't eat any of them now due to allergies. Boo 😪

At least I can still eat chocolate!

I like black walnuts, macadamias, and Marcona almonds. And hazelnuts!

I like most nuts but am not a fan of Brazil nuts. I got a big bag of them though when we were trying for #4 because they're supposed to help with implantation. Also pineapple core (ick!) It worked though 🙂

I used to eat them straight off the tree when the neighbor was not looking.  🙂

Many nuts, like walnuts, taste much better when soaked overnight in salty water and then re-roasted at the lowest possible temperature for several hours until the nuts are crunchy again.

Pecans (which I pronounce pecahns) are my favorite.  I also really like Brazil nuts but those are harder to find.

 

I've been eating more brazil nuts recently.  They can't be cultivated in orchards - they need to be surrounded by rainforest in order to produce.  Compared to (for example) almonds, they are a decent environmental choice.  Over-gathering of brazil nuts can lead to not enough young trees growing up, but at least the parent tree and the surrounding forest is protected, because it provides an income to local people.

I love pine nuts!  Why are they so expensive?

I love pistachios too but they bother my stomach.

Lately I have cravings for pecans every day and I don't know why.  It's like my body needs them.
