What's you favourite? I personally go for a macadamia. To me, that is the king/queen of all nuts! closely followed by the cashew and pistachio!

Its the season for wet walnuts. I noticed some last week. Nice, but different if you have not tried them before.

Is that the same as ripe walnuts, Sarah? They do a delicious dessert of ripe walnuts with honey and clotted cream in Ev.

Wet walnuts...??? I'm intrigued as I've never heard of them. Where do you get these?
Not sure if it's technically a nut but water chestnuts are very good. You get them from oriental stores and they look like conkers. You peel them and they taste nothing like you get in a Chinese take-away. Apparently they are good for mouth ulcers too - so the women in the shop told me!

Wet walnuts are just fresh ordinary walnuts. They are only around at this time of year. They have a distinctly different taste to ordinary ones. A bit like the beech nuts I used to eat as a kid. They also taste like the walnuts you get around the edge of a particular French cheese.

They seem like a bit of a London tradition. The fruit and veg stall at Tatchbrook St market in Pimlico always has them. (Just confirming I shop in SW1 rather than SE1!)But I would expect Borough Market to have them as well.
