The owners of Jeppi Nut Co., a household name among nut and candy lovers in Baltimore for 119 years, say they are confident their store's move to Timonium will prevent a federal court from halting the company's operations. Such a move was threatened when the Food and Drug Administration filed a complaint Feb. 5 stemming from a federal report of rodent and insect infestation. Rather than renovate their aged facility at 312 N. High St., as suggested by the FDA, the company's owners will spend the next two weeks moving to a newer building near Interstate 83 in Timonium.

When the country goes on anti-fat mood swings, John B. Sanfilippo & Son Inc. suffers. The Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based nut company has endured several fat-fighting episodes, but until recently it never benefited from health trends. Because of such protein-rich diets as Atkins and new heart-healthy claims available to nut sellers, Americans are increasingly snacking on the treats, tossing them on salads and seeking prepackaged foods with nuts. "This has been really a unique period," said Jasper Sanfilippo, the company's chief executive.

People all over the world delight in eating nuts roasted, raw and ground. We enjoy them out of hand and in a wide variety of sweet and savory foods from breakfast to snacks to dinner to desserts.Nuts are dry fruits or seeds that generally consist of an edible kernel enclosed in a shell. That shell can range from medium-hard, thin and brittle to woody and tough. The seeds of a few other plants that are not strictly nuts are also considered nuts for culinary purposes.Nuts are sold shelled and unshelled in a variety of forms: blanched or unblanched, raw, dry- or oil-roasted, with or without salt, chopped, sliced, ground (as in butters or flours)

Some people take pistachios for granted. We love them sprinkled liberally over ice cream. Shaved over salads. Toasted and chopped for a halibut crust. Packed for some crunch punch in cookies. Sunken like treasure in soups. Dusted with tangy spice rubs. Even straight-up with a drink at the game - they can give peanuts an inferiority complex. Pistachios are native to the Middle East and are likely the oldest cultivated nut tree in history. Archaeological evidence shows traces of pistachios as far back as 7000 B.C. The first commercial pistachio crop was grown in California in 1976 and it produced 1.5 million pounds of nuts.

Popcorn will tell on itself. "That's how you know it's done. If you just listen, it just tells right on itself," says Edward Morning, a worker at the Jeppi Nut Co., which has been in business for more than 100 years. Dozens of times a day, for 13 years, Morning has prepared popcorn and an assortment of nuts. But unlike popcorn, nuts are a guessing game. "Nuts are funny; how long you cook them depends on what country they are from and the type of nut," he says.

There's a lot of just-average Italian pinot grigios on the market, including some well-known brands. Only a few stand out, and this is one of them. It's a ripe, full-bodied white wine with intense flavors of nuts, minerals and herbs — including mint and oregano. There's a roundness, length and complexity that takes this wine out of the realm of the ordinary. From: Collio, Italy Price: $16 Serve with: Trout almondine, salads
