pinon

So what's the deal with autumn's side of the road pinon sales ?
Are the nuts hard to crack as poets?
Are they dee-licious?
Where do they come from ? Wha-da-they cost?
Are beetles devastating crops?
Please educate us on this autumn New Mexican phenomenon/treat.

one time the girls in the office I worked in were all eating pinons & offered me some. I took at few in my hand, threw them in my mouth & started chewing away. It was the crunchiest, nastiest thing I ever tasted & I noticed the girls were rolling in the floor. Seems you have to chew the shells off first & spit them out.

Pinons in the Fall- another tradition to miss. When I was little, Pinons were called Indian nuts and showed up in vending machines heavily salted. I failed to get excited until we moved to NM and suddenly a lightly salted roasted nut was available. Our family fell in love with them especially in the candy from Buffetts Candy on Lomas or is it Menaul? Christmas wasn't the same without a box of Buffets candy---we liked the plain nuts best. Pignolias are just OK by comparison.

We picked our own yesterday near the NM/CO border....we saw so many cars pulled over as we were driving back from Denver that we decided to stop and "harvest"...these should last a few weeks!

Proceed directly to your nearest Señor Murphy purveyor and get yourself a piñon roll right away.
