My favorite to sit and eat is the pistachio, but I love to use pecans in baked goods and toasted in salads.

Here are what groundnuts look like.These are shelled and eaten raw or put in a pan and fried without oil. I guess Uncle Bob is right, they are what peanuts are before they are shelled,salted and packed.
