They're a bargain at TJ, but you're right IMO about the freshness. A
drugstore chain here (CVS) also has shelled pistachios, and sometimes
Safeway has them too.

Fresher than TJ's? I have some of the unshelled pistachios,
because I was thinking of making a fruitcake. It didn't
materialize though. I hope they are usable for cooking.

I can always buy macadamia nuts without shells in the baking aisle - I
make cookies using those and white "chocolate" chips, instead of
regular chocolate chips. Delicious, so I'm told. Naturally, I've
never tried one.

Speaking of white chocolate and nuts, white chocolate goes well
with hazelnuts. A woman whom I used to work with brought some
wc-h brownies to work, and they were divine. (I am not much of a
white chocolate fan either.)

And I forgot. I'd REALLY like to have hickory nuts again. I used
to sit on my second parents' back steps, smashing them with a
rock. They were REALLY good. One of the houses I looked at had a
pig nut (synonym) tree, and I meant to get a few nuts. I should
have been speedier, because the tree got chopped down a couple of
months ago.

One of our seasonal farm markets here has shelled (and unshelled)
hickory nuts every year. I'm sure you could find them online.

Just too much work for a small result. I leave them for the squirrels.

They really are a PITA to shell - I gathered some and shelled them for
my neighbor, whose husband wanted hickory nut cake, and my grandpa's
farm had hickory trees.....it took forever.

Yes, I do recall that it was rather hard to pry the meat out,
which is probably why they aren't a huge commercial success. But
the meats are so sweet and good.
