Were you going to squeeze the oil out to add to your "race lube"?? Brazil nuts used to be called something similar. Wink

No. I like to eat them.  I buy a can of Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts and I expect to get Brazil nuts.  I sent Planters a email asking if they are nuts. Also reported that their Mixed nuts are not very deluxe without Brazil nuts. Going to have to start reading labels.

Looks like a rain forest drought is at the bottom of it.  Scientists are struggling to develop coffee and bananas to grow in slightly warmer tropical conditions.   What next?  Undecided

Costco still had those Brazil-N-Toe nuts in their plastic jugs of deluxe mixed nuts a couple weeks ago.
Gonna have to look in those clear plastic jugs to see if they start to disappear as they rotate their stock.    Wink

Joe,

Those Chinese are cutting down the Brazil nut trees in the rain forest.    Wink

Yesterday in Costco, I bought a bag of shelled pistachios. They cost less per pound of actual nut than the regular, break-your-fingernail kind. This is nuts.

I remember a time not long ago when I got Brazil nuts in a can of mixed nuts. Those were the days my friend!

Don't know if we have any Brazilian members,
but if you keep posting on this forum, you'll get all the mixed nuts you could want.


I resemble that remark,

Joe

You would have really gone nuts in a small Mom & Pop grocery store I worked in when I was in high school. (For 60 cents an hour). Down in the basement were 50 or 100 lb (I don't remember but they were big) bags of Brazil nuts. We sold them by the pound and yes, I managed to graze on a few. Cool

So close to Sacred Valhalla, and you must have been to young to realize it.  Embarrassed  I'm so glad you still have the memories.  Burlap sacks? Filled with Brazil nuts you say?  Salted or plain?
