I bought a pound of mixed nuts in the shell so I could take a picture for this post. My family ended up eating most of them before I had a chance to photograph. That surprised me. I didn’t know they were so nuts for nuts.
They left the Brazil nuts and a few walnuts. We all agreed the hazel nuts were the best, with almonds coming in a close second.
Here are a few of my recipes that use nuts:
- Honey Cashew Pork Stir-Fry
- Butterscotch Snack Mix
- Coconut Macadamia Ice Cream
- Kentucky Chocolate and Nut Pie for the Derby
This is the last Ingredient Spotlight of 2010. I’ll bring it back in January with a whole new schedule of ingredients to feature.
Now it’s your turn to share your recipes. Link up any recipe on your blog that uses nuts. It doesn’t have to be a recent post, just be sure to link directly to your recipe, not just the main page of your blog. I only ask that you include a link back to Eat at Home in your post. You can link directly to this post or use the button in the sidebar.
