Just received these roasted Chinese walnuts from a friend in China. I was ecstatic!
One thing you should know about me: I love nuts (of all kinds, except peanuts).
These roasted Chinese walnuts are truly exceptional – the roasted, toasty flavours are incredible and apparent even as you start cracking the nuts.
My only problem with them? – They are tough nuts to crack. These are frustrating because I take a good ten times longer to crack them than to eat them. No kidding!
I was about to relinquish the bowl of walnuts to a more willing party when I turned and saw J walking into the living room unwittingly. Coincidentally, he was wearing the new Superman T-shirt I got him. I had my answer.
J certainly had more dexterity in cracking walnuts than me – he made it into an experiment where he attempted to find out the best way of cracking them and hulling them. Well, it certainly works for the two of us – one having fun cracking, one having fun eating.
This must be one of the few times that I can have my cake and eat it too (well, in this case nuts). I’m savouring it!
p.s thank you J, my very own Superman!
