View Full Version : Almonds in the Shell
10-20-2005, 08:04 AM
In my never ending quest to find cheaper nuts I did a search for bulk nuts and found a site that sells almonds in the shell. It might be too much work for some but they certainly cost a lot less. I figure I could shell a bunch while watching a movie or sitting on my terrace enjoying the sun (And get my son in on it too. Let him do something besides eat me out of house and home!)
A 25 lb. case is only $2.19/lb.
Here's the site in case you're interested.

I bought Almonds in the Shell today at the store, and I am wondering if they are raw.
The shell is VERY dry, and the nut is dark skin and dry to. Is it possible being from Calif the nut in the shell is not raw either ?

First of all, in my opinion raw in shell are better because there's less chance of rancidity YET, these particular ones are not organic AND the question is, is it better to pay for the shell or the nut alone? Possibly, paying for shelled includes the shelling process yet, when paying for something by the pound, one is also paying for the shell. (I purchase shelled and keep them in the fridge.... ummm, well, I would, if I didn't eat them so quickly) :D
rawfigure> ummm, not sure what you mean. What does coming from Ca. have to do with it being raw or not? It's possible to be either. Best thing is ask the folk you got them from, eh? Was there a sign which said "raw" or, did you assume cuz they were in the shell they would be? (I would have assumed so.)
One thing I like about this forum, we can become aware of our assumptions. I would not have thought almonds in the shell would be other than raw. Now, I'll look for more information when I'm shopping. Thanks rawfigure for bringing this up.
