Christmas Quiz and Festive Flowers

James compiled a quiz which required us to identify a range of nuts and seeds in teams of three.

Not only was it great fun, but we learnt fascinating information too.  For example, the Queen of Sheba decreed pistachios an exclusively royal food.  Also, the Brazil nut is named after its country of origin and resembles a coconut.  These hard balls contain eight to twelve nuts in one shell
