Lamb And Mutton
LAMB, HOGGET, and MUTTON are the meat of domestic sheep (species Ovis aries) at different ages. A sheep in its first year is called a lamb, and its meat is also called lamb. The meat of a juvenile sheep older than one year is hogget; outside the USA this is also a term for the living animal. The meat of an adult sheep is mutton, a term only used for the meat, not the living animals. The term mutton is almost always used to refer to goat meat in the Indian subcontinent
Indian subcontinent
. Lamb is the most expensive of the three types, and in recent decades sheep meat is increasingly only retailed as "lamb", sometimes stretching the accepted distinctions given above. The stronger-tasting mutton is now hard to find in many areas, despite the efforts of the Mutton Renaissance Campaign in the UK. In Australia, the term PRIME LAMB is often used to refer to lambs raised for meat

Mehdi Bazargan noted "to oppose Islam to Iranian nationalism is tantamount to destroying ourselves.

Nut (fruit)
A NUT is a fruit composed of an inedible hard shell and a seed , which is generally edible. In general usage, a wide variety of dried seeds are called nuts, but in a botanical context "nut" implies that the shell does not open to release the seed (indehiscent ). The translation of "nut" in certain languages frequently requires paraphrases, as the word is ambiguous . Most seeds come from fruits that naturally free themselves from the shell, unlike nuts such as hazelnuts , chestnuts , and acorns , which have hard shell walls and originate from a compound ovary. The general and original usage of the term is less restrictive, and many nuts (in the culinary sense), such as almonds , pecans , pistachios , walnuts , and Brazil nuts , are not nuts in a botanical sense. Common usage of the term often refers to any hard-walled, edible kernel as a nut
