Ingredient Guide: Nuts & Seeds
Full of healthy fats as well as protein and fiber, nuts and seeds serve as a great addition to many dishes and can also be enjoyed on their own as a satisfying snack.
These common nuts are actually legumes and are widely grown throughout the South. About half of the crop is used to produce peanut butter. The most common varieties are Virginia peanuts and Spanish peanuts. Raw peanuts can be boiled in the shell, or shelled nuts can be roasted and salted. Shelled peanuts should not be chopped until right before consumption to guarantee freshness.
