I left Chicago 5 years a god and returned about 3 months ago. One of my favorite places - Ricci Nuts on Superior has closed; reportedly over night.
I'm looking for a GREAT supplier of bulk nuts to the average consumer. Other things like dried fruits and beans, flours would be a bonus. I know Whole Foods offers but their pricing kills me. and some times their freshness/quality is questionable.
Ricci was THE BOMB!
We're specifically looking for basic roasted, raw, salted, unsalted mixes and individual nuts like walnuts for baking and just plain eating out of hand.
I live in Ukrainian Village but like most hounds will travel for quality.
Help me 'hounds, you're my only hope! } : - )
