Not a recipe but a grumble, whats happened to Brazil nuts? why cant I find really tasty ones anymore, that crack after a long tussle and enclose a crisp white kernel. Nowadays all I can buy are mealy damp things that pop open with little or no pressure and taste like mdf! ....... Bah!

I can't help greatly, but note that we currently have a highly expensive bag of Wairose's Organic Chestnuts that are not fit for human consumption, and are due to be returned.

Nuts generally seem poor quality compared to what I remember from years back.

Congratulations though on being able to make the comparison to the taste of MDF - I can't say I have ever sampled that orally myself!

Our much loved 50 foot "Trad" style narrow boat is now offered for sale at Rugby Boats on this link.

They are difficult to buy here, too, if it's any consolation!

I must be getting old, because I used to enjoy a good tussle with the nutcrackers, but I've got a bag of naked ones from \Morrison's which taste just fine.

It's due to climate change. Nuts just aint what they used to be :)
