Crunch time

Nuts Jan 12
  • Crunch time

“The leaues of Beech do coole; the kernell of the Nut is somewhat moist,” reads an ancient text, from a time when beechnuts were in vogue. A few more nuts that feed or have fed humans in certain times and places: acorns, breadnuts, butternuts, ginkgo nuts, heartnuts, hickory nuts, jack nuts, jojoba nuts, oyster nuts, tallow nuts and tiger nuts. We fancy what we haven’t. I haven’t a cellar full of wine, nor a larder packed with beech, butter, oyster and breadnuts.
