OMG! Dear God, these tasted good. So rich, they were almost buttery. Sweet and salty. Simply the best tasting thing I have ever put in my mouth. Really.
I was wondering why I had never heard of these nuts before. It turns out that they are, according to the internet so it must be true, difficult to shell. The packet states that these Hickory nuts are shelled by hand, which is presumably labour intensive and expensive, but oh so worth it. Move over pecans; despite being from the same genus, you have been sent to second place by my new favourite nut, the hickory nut.
