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.
Pecans for sure!!
Our church has several pecan trees, and every year, we collect the fallen pecans. They are delicious raw, unlike other nuts that usually taste better roasted.
