Re: Pine Nuts in the Shell - has anyone tried these?

I used to purchase pine nuts in the shell online - http://www.pinenuts.net/ - they were 'pricey', but Molly Kule loved them. Now, I get the pine nuts from Costco, out of the shell - and give my flyers hazelnuts, for the 'tooth care' element of nuts in the shell. Much less expensive, in the long run.
