Each pair of words has a missing word between them that acts as a link to both (e.g FRONT- DOOR -MAT ). The initial letters of the six answers (reading downwards)will spell out the name of a type of nut.

1) WEIGH - - - - - - MAN
2) FRENCH - - - - - ALONE
3) PEPPER - - - - SAUCE
4) WIDE - - - - MARKET
5)TAKE - - - - - - ABLE
6) STABLE - - - - STOP

- - - - indicates the ammount of letters in each answer
please answer one at a time thanks

6 must be Stable-DOOR-Stop. Just found another answer for #3, STEAK, but it won't quite work with the final answer

Once again, I can't fill in any of the missing links right now ... but I 'm pretty sure that the nut spelled out by the initial letters of the links is ALMOND. (Wez... your
'almond' theory wasn't wrong!)

Oops ... a lightbulb just went off in my head (thanks for the help on this one Wez!)

#5 ---> Take -- NOTICE -- Able

I've heard of #2 Leave Alone, but what the dickens is French Leave ?

Assuming that I'm correct, which is a distinct impossibility!
