Baru (Dipteryx alata) is an ancient Legume from the Brazilian savannah, being a source of revenue for the local communities that gather their fruits from the wild. The seeds are also known as "baru nuts" or even "baru almonds" in English, but make no mistake, they're certified nut-free and peanut-free.
