Crazy for nuts

Dry roasted, in-the-shell almonds? That’s nuts! I spied these goodies on the bottom shelf at Trader Joe’s. I almost didn’t get them, because I thought you might need a nutcracker for them and I have no idea where mine is. The good news is, though, that the shells are cracked and thin enough so that you can open them with your fingers, just like a peanut. They’re very tasty. My only wish is that the salt pervaded more of the shell, because unless you pry them open with your teeth, you miss that salty goodness. But otherwise, they’re a nice change from peanuts. photo (5)
