Once again, this week's challenj was suggested by the sempiternal donutsweeper, who accepts all responsibility in perpetuity.
Nuts! and/or nut butters. Or both! Show me what you can do.
For the avoidance of doubt, and with my mod hat on, Wikipedia tells me that
A nut in botany is a simple dry fruit in which the ovary wall becomes increasingly hard as it matures, and where the seed remains unattached or free within the ovary wall.but this is boring, and it's worth noting that the same article already says that
The general and original usage of the term is less restrictive, and many nuts (in the culinary sense), such as almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, and Brazil nuts, are not nuts in a botanical sense. Common usage of the term often refers to any hard-walled, edible kernel as a nut.Then there's a little blue number in brackets, so you know it must be true.
This is a weekly food challenj and legumes are welcomed here, as long as you can make a reasonable justification that it's a nut in the culinary sense. No gatekeeping please.
I'mma get you all started with an old one of mine: On optimal combinations.
