The ancients gathered on the night of Yalda, which is the longest night of the year, and ate nuts and snacks. Most of the time, these nuts and snacks were left with the remaining dried fruits that had been stored since the summer. In this way, the Yalda nuts that are offered today were formed. Yalda Barjil nuts contain almond kernels, peeled almonds , cashews , pistachios , walnuts, figs, green raisins and raisins. These nuts are highly recommended for consumption on Yalda night or other times of the year due to their long history and many health properties.
