Nuts are simply delicious and a fabulous source of Protein. They contain the healthy form of fats that we require to maintain a healthy diet.
I particularly love almonds and hazel nuts ,eating them on their own or ground to replace flour in baked goods, such as cakes.
Unfortunately we buy nuts from the supermarket ,open them and then leave them in the pantry to simply go off. If you eat a nut and think yuck it is probably simply too old and has gone rancid.
1. Keep nuts refrigerated or even in the freezer
2 Try to buy form a supplier of nuts
3 Always roast before use – leave in a cool to moderate oven for around 20 minutes
4 Store in an airtight container
