How many of you buy your nuts in the shell then shell them yourself when you are baking? I'm starting to buy ingredients for Christmas and was wondering if maybe I should take a crack at it. (heh heh). There's so much talk about the lack of freshness of shelled nuts (unless it's from a health food store and they are refrigerated but even then I am not sure...) Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the United States! Hope you are enjoying all your wonderful meals!
