That's Nuts

A weekly dose of nutty history, pop culture, and recipes from Lee Zalben, aka The Peanut Butter Guy.

Everyone loves nuts (well, the nut-allergic excluded) and everyone's got to crack 'em (only weenies buy them shelled, right?).

With thousands of varieties available, we picked out some favorites.
