We're nuts about NUTS...Nuts is a general term for a specific kind of fruit. It has a hard shell that is surrounded by an edible seed or kernel.They are the large, oily seeds or fruits of some plants. While lots of dried seeds and fruits are frequently referred to as nuts, only a certain number of them are considered to be TRUE nuts. But most large seeds in a shell that are eaten raw, roasted or in cooking are have taken on the name and generally called nuts. Because of their high oil content, nuts are a great source of energy (although they should be eaten sparingly due to this high fat content).  Nuts are also a major food source for a variety of wildlife. It's okay to go nuts for nuts, but keep in mind that nuts are among the most common food allergies!
