Cashew ButterEdit

Cashew is not a real butter, but merely a fabrication of the cashew lobby.

What is a nut, and what isn't?Edit

In the current state of this page, I am confused about the definition of nut. Please refer to Nut (fruit) for comparison.

First, I assume that the culinary definition of nut is what applies here. Probably that should be made clear on the page.

Second, Regardless of definition, this page (which is not about the definition of nut) is in conflict with the page that is about that definition.

Here are items that both pages agree are nuts, by any definition:

  • Hazelnut
  • Pecan
  • Walnut

Items both pages agree are nuts in the culinary sense, even though they are not nuts in the botanical sense:

  • Almond (a seed of a drupe)
  • Cashew (a seed)
  • Macadamia (a kernel)
  • Pistachio (a seed of a drupe)

Items that the nut page says are culinary nuts that our page says are not nuts:

  • Peanut (a legume and a seed)

So while only three of the nuts are nuts in the botanical sense, we also list a bunch of seeds and a kernel in the list of nuts, and only separate out peanut (and some seeds) for special attention.

So my question is why do we separate out Peanut, and not Almond, Cashew, Macadamia, and Pistachio? I think most people consider all of them to be nuts. I do think it makes sense to draw attention to the other seeds that the average person would not consider to be nuts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:10, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Nutritional properties has no reference valueEdit

There is a nutritional properties table but it doesn't say what the reference amount is. It says tablespoon for calories but doesn't say if this applies to the other categories. If so, why are we mixing volume and weight? I don't frequent the culinary pages much but if this is a common practice it seems absurd. --Shadebug (talk) 10:33, 21 July 2010 (UTC)


How is nut butter made? When you grind nuts up, no matter how finely, you get nut powder, not a paste. So it would be relevant to know what kind of processes are required to produce nut butters from nuts. RustyGriswold (talk) 02:35, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Hazelnut butterEdit

Hazelnut butter should probably link to hazelnut butter and not beurre noisette. AppetiteDynamo (talk) 22:05, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
