A huge and somewhat delayed thank you to P from Saudi Arabia who very kindly dropped off a bounty of pine nuts for Marketman at one of the Zubuchon restaurants. Thank you very much. I seem to have misplaced your email address and can’t find it in my address book so I thought at the very least I could do this quick post. I will go pesto crazy and add the toasted pine nuts to salads as well. Totally unexpected, totally unnecessary, but greatly appreciated. Salamat!

    Lucky you MM! Pine nuts are a rarity in groceries and if I do find some in specialty stores they’re so expensive but I guess worth it if you’re a pesto lover like me. Anyway, I had just voted for you in the Tattawards. =)

    Have you encountered something called “pine nuts mouth”? A rare occurance-reaction after eating pine nuts and your mouth taste bitter for days if not weeks. Happened to me and my hubby last month. Culprit was pine nuts imported from “C”. Not a very pleasant experience at all. Will have to be careful when indulging in this luxury snack.

    @ Ruth T. I have experienced “pine mouth” and it is truly excruciating. Everything you eat has a metallic aftertaste for days or even weeks.I think those yellow pine nuts from China are the culprit. Only the ones from China. The italian and australian types are okay.
    Good for my diet though. I wasn’t able to eat much during those times. :)
