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!

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.
