Possible to buy Brazil nuts in the shell?
Brazil nuts come out around Winter holiday time (as do many other in shell nuts) But I have not seen them any other time. They have a very high oil content and are therefore prone to going rancid when kept over time (Keeping in a freeze is a good storage method)
I found this source online : http://www.irvington-nj.com/Westco.html
And there are various online side that sell them in shell including Amazon.
Thank you for your replies. I am ordering from the nuts.com website and picking them up at their warehouse in Cranford. Appreciate the suggestion. By the way, I love the website and found some items I like that are not easy to find in general.
I had a chuckle after reading dratlover's comment. I'm ordering the Brazil nuts for my daughter who is returning from Brazil after several months studying in the Amazon River Basin. She spent a few days with Brazil nut farmers so she learned to harvest and shell the nuts using a machete for export. She was given a machete which she is bringing home with her (yes...allowed in checked baggage!)
