Brazil Nut

It is the seed of a giant tree that grows wild in the tropical South American jungle. The nuts grow packed together like the segments of an orange inside a large, spherical woody fruit. The shell of a Brazil nut is hard and greyish brown, the nut inside is creamy in colour and creamy and delicate in taste. It is rich in fat, thiamine and magnesium. These nuts are not widely used in cooking, but are a traditional addition to the fruit bowl at Christmas. They are very tasty eaten raw in muesli, or chopped as part of a nut loaf, or rich fruitcake.
