August 3rd is National Grab Some Nuts Day

“Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t”

Today is “Grab Some Nuts” Day. First of all, shame on you for what you’re thinking. Second, shame on you for what you’re thinking.

Nut or not a nut? Nuts are a one-seeded fruit that are popular salted snacks or common ingredients in recipes. But did you know that some of the most popular nuts are not technically nuts?

Walnuts are not a nut. Almonds are a nut. Peanuts are actually legumes. Acorns are nuts, but they taste good only to squirrels, it would seem. Test your knowledge of nuts on National Grab Some Nuts Day!

My favorite nuts are cashews and pistachios, and I’ve been meaning to pick a can or two up (even if I do think of nuts as a fall and winter snack, don’t ask me why).

Here is a great recipe you can make with nuts:
