Peanuts
Also known as monkey nuts and groundnuts, peanuts are seeds embedded in a flower that burrows into the earth to reproduce, hence the term groundnut.
They are native to South America, yet their popularity has spread around the world.

Chop the peeled nuts finely and add to salads, vegetable dishes, rice dishes, cakes and biscuits. If you plan to use peanuts in sweet dishes, be sure to buy raw nuts and not the roasted, salted variety.
