    I suppose, in a pinch, hot dog slices can be a substitute for pepperoni on a pizza. Not that I would go there.

    I love cashews. Peanuts are the deer crap of nuts. Good in chocolate but that's about it.

    It's not that I dislike either peanuts or cashews, I just like them less than I like the other nuts. Maybe it's because technically neither are nuts.

    Is that similarity in taste somehow coming from the voice of experience? :eek:

    I don't know if he said they were similar in taste. He did say that deer crap and peanuts were good in chocolate.

    In a technical sense, yes, as all that remains is a quarter jar of cashews and peanuts. The consumption rate of the remaining is asymptotic.

    Plenty of legumes were hurt in this thread when you call them nuts!

    Black Walnuts are far and away my favorite but buying them in the store is cost prohibitive and cracking them yourself is a real b***h.

    One caveat about almonds - I do not like plain unsalted almonds. Blue Diamond seasoned almonds, however, rock.

    Legume: "the large plant family Leguminosae (or Fabaceae), typified by herbaceous plants, shrubs, trees, and vines having usually compound leaves, clusters of irregular, keeled flowers, and fruit in the form of a pod splitting along both sides, and including beans, peas, acacia, alfalfa, clover, indigo, lentil, mesquite, mimosa, and peanut."

    I still don't know the difference.

    Neither does anyone else. Wanna sound smart? Just drop "It's a legume, actually." in any conversation.

    Cashews are the prize,
    Peanuts & Brazil nuts are the filler.
    Everybody knows that. ;)

    All nuts are fruits.
