Let’s go Nuts!
Nuts are rich in protein, fibre, fats, and long burning carbs. They make good year-round food and particularly so in colder weather.
Hazelnut trees are a UK wild native species, whilst sweet chestnuts, originally native to Turkey, Greece and Iraq are long naturalised to Britain. Our third most common UK nut species is of course walnut. Brought here by the Romans we soon learnt that they made a useful trading food and indeed introduced them to America (California) from whom we import back to this day! (If you missed our walnut post on the 12th of October, go back and have a read maybe?)
Nuts are lovely whole or roasted, flaked and crumbled. Or turned in flour for use in wheat-free recipes.
Especially delicious is roughly crumbled walnuts in salads and on roasted veg. Whilst almond flour is a must in fruit crumbles, combined with oats. And also to thicken savoury sauces for cold-weather sustenance. Whist hazelnuts are delicious chucked in smoothies for their creamy fortifying flavour.
