Any thoughts on the quality of TJ's pine nuts? Considering that now pine nuts are almost $30.00 a pound, I couldn't resist picking up a very cheap bag at TJ's this weekend. IIRC it was no more than $2.00 for a large bag (I don't remember the weight). The pine nuts did look smaller than what I usually buy but still, what a value! The label did say they were imported from (again IIRC) Vietnam, China and a 3rd country. I frequently toast the nuts before using so that may help cover up any, um, deficiencies in quality.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
