My favorite would be pecans, followed by cashews, walnuts and macadamias.
I like pretty much all nuts except pistachios. If I was forced to pick a favorite, though, it would be macadamias.
My favorites are almonds, macadamias, and filberts… I used to love love love cashews as a child… then when I turned 30, they turned on me and I became deathly allergic to them (and pistachios).. breaks my heart..
5.) Red-skinned peanuts
Cashews are my favorite. Next in line are walnuts, pecans, almonds (especially BBQ), spanish peanuts, honey roasted peanuts, dry roasted peanuts, and hazelnuts.
The only nuts I don’t really like are Brazil nuts and boiled peanuts.
We love to cook with nuts, particularly in spicy Chinese and Thai stir frys.
Pistachios ceverd in red or green chile powder (an NM thing..)
Love em’ all with walnuts and almonds coming in last, except if they are smoked almonds then its almonds walnuts…most favorite though is boiled.
As a child I loved peanuts only, until I ate some (in a shell at a baseball game)
that had worms in them. I was so ill that I didn’t eat peanuts for years unless
it was in or on a candy bar…gotta love those Paydays.
I like any nut involved with chocolate, except WALNUTS. I hate walnuts, yet I have
over 12 walnuts trees which the squirrels love, which makes me love those squirrels and
causes me think that people that love walnuts must be a bit squirrely[:D]. Of course,
I’ve never ate an English Walnut, and never intend to since I support the Irish cause, which
is another matter.
Pecans are another flavour I will get ill over.
Almonds became an early love thanks to Hershey’s with Almond bars.
The years have given me a love for cashews, chestnuts and hazelnuts.
Lately, we made a liqeur out hazelnuts from our hazelnut trees. It is tasty.
I will partake of the donut as well.
There was a nut I once love, my first wife, but she gave me heart disease.
My second wife, another nut, the Debra-nut, cured my heart disease and I enjoy her daily.
And oh yes, pine-nuts are wonderful, especially in a crustard-like desert that my wife
makes, but I can’t recall the name of it. It’s Italian.
I hope you all will consider me your Nutty-Buddy…in honour of a good candy.
Ya know, when I listed this topic I knew the title could go lots of different ways….I decided to play it straight! And I’m enjoying all the "nutty rsponses" so far! Don’t forget about nut butters – peanut butter, obviously, but I’ve also seem almond butter (which to me doesn’t taste so good)…
My favorite nut is Pecans. I love them in just about anything. I grind them up and add to my cream cheese stuffing for celery, I add them to salads and mix up cin. and sugar and glaze them, I like them salted, roasted, and raw. I just wish they weren’t so darned expensive.
There is a receipe out in cyberland somewhere that you use chopped up olives and pecans to make a olive nut spread (I think Heloise came up with this one). I don’t have my receipe handy but surely it can be "googled".
Well, I personally love just about all nuts (lets keep this topic clean LoL), but Ide have to go w/ cashews and walnuts as my favorite. I personally make a lot of trail mixes and put them in little baggies for quick on the go snacks. I like to mix banana chips, raisins, dried apricots and assorted nuts.
Anyone have any favorite/unusual dishes that include nuts? Of course theres always the usual pecan pie, but maybe something a little less common?
What’s your love/hate nuts?
I love almonds, hazelnuts and brazil nuts, hate walnuts and peanuts….
