Identifying Tree Nuts?

Answer

Most people today go nutting for pleasure. This puts you inside the fall forest kaleidoscope, every step a crunch in leaves, the air crisp and laden with the musky scent of autumn. There is no better time to be in the woods, and no better excuse than to be gathering tasty nuts. Identifying the best tasting nuts will save time and energy, and assist in picking the very best to be had. For example, there are more than 60 species of oak trees in North America, and every one of them produces edible acorns. Generally, nuts from trees in the red oak group have a bitter taste, thanks to their high content of tannin. White oaks contain less tannin and produce acorns that are considerably sweeter.
