I love raw walnuts and raw brazil nuts. I also like raw pecans, hazelnuts and cashews. I generally had only ever tried all those nuts raw, except for cashews. When I had all these nuts as a kid, it was usually near Christmas when my parents would be the big bags of nuts in the shells and put them out, and we had to use nutcrackers. So I prefer walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans raw. Cashews are good too, they are blander than their roasted counterpart, but they are versatile. I love english walnuts, but I think some people might think they are bland. Pecans are sweeter than most nuts, so maybe try those first if you like pecans. I'm not a big fan of roasted pecans, but I like them raw.
