Where do you guys buy unshelled nuts?

Postby Chuck » Sun 21 May 2006 04:50

I live in LA and I've checked stores like Wholefoods, Trader Joes, Wild Oats and all my supermarkets, but they do not sell unshelled nuts. What's a good place to buy unshelled nuts? Please help! I'm trying to get on this diet, but I'm having so much probably getting my food supplies.

You could check online. I forget the urls, but I think some have been posted before.

I can't vouch for either.

I can for nutsonline: I got what was expected, 5 lbs of in-shell brazil nuts. Nothing more, nothing less. Only a few were noticably bad from outside (small insect hole through shell, or cracked), but about 1 out of 10 were rancid once opened. I don't know if that is the norm among brazil nuts, I've never got a truly fresh batch.

Thats quite normal, as the nuts are samples from different years as a result of collecting them.
