With Diamond, it’s easy to add the taste, texture and nutrition of nuts to virtually anything. We offer a range of shelled and in-shell walnuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, glazed nuts, pine nuts, black walnuts, cashews, and pistachios. Sprinkle them on your cereal or yogurt. Chop them for a crunch crust for chicken and fish. Liven up veggies with a topping of toasted nuts. Or turn a salad into a main dish simply by adding your favorite nuts. The possibilities are endless! Here at Diamond, we believe that nuts make good food even better!
Hints and Tips:
Toasting nuts adds extra flavor and crispness. For best results, toast in the oven or on the stovetop. Nuts toasted in the microwave do not develop as much flavor or crunch. Toasting time depends on both the size and variety of the nut.
Oven Toasting: Spread nuts in a single layer on an ungreased baking pan. Place in 350°F oven and bake 5 to 12 minutes or until nuts are golden brown; stir once or twice until toasty and fragrant. Remove from pan to cool. Nuts will continue to brown slightly after removed from oven.
Roasting In-the-Shell Nuts:
Preheat the oven to 375°F. For 4 servings, spread 4 cups of in-shell nuts on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, carefully remove one nut, holding it with a dish towel or pot holder, and crack it open. The meat should be lightly toasted and aromatic. If it still looks pale inside, roast a few minutes longer. Let the nuts cool before serving. Smaller nuts, such as hazelnuts and almonds, may take less time.
