Pine Nuts!

After lunch we took stroll through Yangjae park.  Spending some time there before hitting Costco makes a nice day trip.

We found some large pine cones and realized they were full of nuts.  Thus began the Great Pine Nut Gathering of 2010.

We filled one of those plastic bags you get from a supa about 1/3 full of the unshelled nuts.  When we brought that home the Mother-in-Law was more impressed with that than the three huge bags and large box of Costco goodness.

She and the girls are still shelling them as I write this.

Do you know?  Korean pine nut is best number one in the world!  This is true.

My hands still smell like pine.  When we hit Costco, I felt an inexplicable urge to buy some gin. . .
