The bitter taste in my mouth continues so my investigation goes on. The suspect ‘baby pine nuts’ came from Julian Graves store in Livingston a couple of weeks ago. I remember they had both regular and small pine nuts and we bought the small but as I quickly discarded the packaging I don’t have any information about them beyond my memory.
So off to the Edinburgh Julian Graves to see if I could find some more but this is a small store and only had the regular pine nuts. I bought them for comparative purposes. Here are the pictures of the two types of nuts.
The smaller ones appear to be more oily – they stuck to the scanner lid when the others didn’t. Perhaps they are just lower grade and off?
The new packet I have does not state the country of origin which we need if we are going to track down the species. I did think this had to be listed for legal reasons in the UK.
Next step write to Julian Graves and ask them.
