Nuts for Nuts

Several weeks ago Tierra Farm sent us samples of their organic nuts and dried fruits. We eat organic food whenever we can, and we were very excited to try the organic nuts and dried fruits.

Here is what was in the box:

  • Organic Maple Cashew Butter
  • Organic Dried Mango Slices
  • Organic Crystallized Ginger
  • Organic Raw Walnuts
  • Organic Roasted Agave Ginger Cashews
  • Organic Dried Cranberries
  • Organic Chocolate Covered Almonds
  • Organic Maple Glazed Mixed Nuts
  • Organic Roasted Curry Cashews
  • Organic Roasted Salted Pistachio Meat
  • Organic Hunza Golden Raisins
  • Organic Roasted Unsalted Almonds
So far we have tried the pistachio meat, the roasted curry cashews, the chocolate covered almonds, and the maple glazed mixed nuts.

Hubby very much enjoyed the pistachio meat, and it was gone in no time… My favorite so far were the curry cashews. I love curry, and I don’t think I had ever had nuts with curry. They were absolutely delicious. I was very sad when I ate the last few… The teenager dug into the chocolate covered almonds; I think he was a bit disappointed that it was dark chocolate. But no worries, hubby and I have been enjoying a few each evening. I think the dark chocolate goes perfectly with the almonds.

Thank you Tierra Farm for letting us try your products! We're really looking forward to trying the rest of them.

Question: What's your favorite nut? I eat a few walnuts almost every morning with my oatmeal. And I love cashews. I think the curry cashews are the best cashews I have ever had...

Be well,
