Nuts & Seeds
What are Italian nuts?
Italian nuts are covered in a hard, inedible shell that is removed before being packaged and sold, which makes it a convenient snack that can be enjoyed any time. Depending on the variety, nuts & seeds also add a substantial heartiness to homemade bread, crackers, and granola. Italian nuts can also be ground finely with other spices and seasonings and made into a spread or sauce with a smooth and creamy consistency. Read More
