I was out for lunch and outside one of the Lebanese shops were these. They’re almonds! I’ve never seen them like this before so of course I had to buy some. They’ve just come into season apparently. What you do is, you split the outer layer and inside is the seed that will become an almond – it’s slightly gelantinous and a bit bitter and doesn’t really taste of almonds but it does have a refreshing quality and it’s fun to eat. Plus, it’s new! How lucky am I to have all this exciting food around me?
New food! I love new food!
