It is commonly known that walnuts are very healthy (unless of course you have an allergy) but did you also know that...
1. A walnut is the seed of a drupe or drupaceous nut, and therefore technically it isn't a nut. 2. The Greeks called walnuts "karyon", meaning head, for the obvious reason that the shell resembles a skull and the kernel resembles a brain. 3. Walnut husks can be used to make ink for writing and drawing; it is thought to have been used by some of the great artists in history, including da Vinci and Rembrandt.
