I was trying to translate a passage and realised I don't know how to say 'nuts' in general. The sentence was: In my days, girls in the family were not given sweets, nuts and good things to eat. De mon temps, on ne donnait pas de bonbons, de fruits secs ou de bonnes choses aux filles d'une famille. When I looked up 'nuts,' I was presented with a range of options but not fruits secs (which I guess means dried fruit). I found 'noix' - but this seems to imply a particular kind of nut. Also suggested in the dicionary were amande (again a specific kind of nut) and noisette (likewise). Is there not a generic word for all nuts in French?
