Sounds interesting!

What are "nut meats" ? Not sure I've come across them before.

“Nutmeats” for a baked good refers to the nuts without the shells and in a raw state. If your recipe calls for one cup of nutmeats, just fill a cup measure with the nuts and without the nuts already chopped. You should probably select walnuts. But, it’s hard for me to know. If you are preparing a savory dish, the recipe is probably refering to walnuts which, like hazlenuts and peanuts, have a thin skin over the nut as well. Remove that outerskin by blanching quickly, rub off the skin, and then measure for your recipe. You can also purchase ‘nutmeat’ in the baking aisle of most grocery stores – comes in a tin.
