    Walnuts. Which by weight have levels of beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids comparable to salmon. I also like almonds.

    Cashew, and pecans. They're not nuts but I also like shelled sunflower seeds.

    I miss picking pecans at my grandma's house. Every fall, all the grandchildren would scurry into the pecan orchard with buckets and pails. I don't know how we ever got enough to carry back because we were eating the entire time. After we returned to her house, she would set us all chairs on her front screen porch. We would sit there for hours cracking pecans, laughing and telling stories to each other. We were forbidden to eat them but that rule was a complete joke. She would take the pecans and make homemade pecan pie, homemade ice cream with nuts and a variety of other desserts that all included lots and lots of nuts. She would save some to make candied pecans with too, which was a favorite of ours.

    "Nut tree´s"? Do you just use apostrophes at random?

    Eating raw nuts is a lot healthier than eating roasted nuts. (Damn that sentence started off dirty lol.) There are more unsaturated fats, enzymes and less of the toxic stuff created by the charring of the protein in the roasting process. I try to get my nuts raw!

    Something I recently found out though is that raw nuts sold in stores are actually pasteurized. I recently have been buying nuts from a farmer at the Castro Farmers Market, she was telling me about the pasteurization process required for selling in stores. But her nuts are truly raw (ha!) because she doesn't have to comply with those regulations.

    I have been buying raw almonds from her, and I swear they are sweeter and even taste like they have a bit of moisture in them. She also has organic raw raisins that are delirious too. Her prices are better than the store too, at about $4 a pound when you buy 2 lbs or more.
