    Going Nuts

    Match the name of the nut to the picture.

    The Many Benefits of Nuts

    Nuts are great as energy-boosting snacks and crunchy, flavorful additions to cooked dishes. They are nutritional powerhouses, rich in protein, fiber, calcium, and other nutrients.

    Almonds have more fiber and protein, than any other nuts; they are even good for your heart. Toasting improves their rather chewy texture and mild flavor. Sliced or slivered almonds add an elegant touch to everyday green beans, and ground almonds make a delicious nut butter.

    Cashews sprout from the bottom of a cashew apple, the fruit of a tropical evergreen tree. Because their shells contain an irritating oil, they are always sold shelled. Cashews have less fat than most other nuts. They are also common in baked goods and Asian meat dishes.

    Hazelnuts are mostly grown in Turkey and pair well with chocolate and coffee. The nuts are sweet and complement meats and sweets equally well.

    Peanuts are the most popular nuts in the United States. Most peanuts are made into oil or ground into butter, but they are delicious eaten out of hand.

    Pecans have an especially high fat content. And have a rich, creamy, buttery taste. This nut is often used in pies and candies.

    Nuts such as pistachios are high in calcium and walnuts are high in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.
