tree nuts

walnuts, Brazil nuts...the list goes on. And a fair number of people are deathly allergic to the whole bunch of 'em. Hence, the warning.

Re: tree nuts

But peanuts don't fall into the same category, I take it? Confusing. I know about nut allergies and how dangerous they can be, but I didn't know they differentiated between *types* of nuts. (Since I don't really care for any kind of nut, I've never learned much about 'em...)

Re: tree nuts

Right, peanuts are legumes, like peas and beans. So technically, they're not nuts at all.

Though oddly enough, both cashews and peanuts give my husband migraines, even though cashews are tree nuts. Other nuts don't seem to bother him.
