My mother's favorite nut is very hard to find. It is the Pinon or Indian nut. Many nut stores do not carry it due to it being very small and hard to crack. But, she loves them! I was hoping to surprise her with some. Do you know of any stores in Manhattan (or the Outer Boroughs) that might carry them?
I am also on the lookout for Maple Walnut Ice Cream. It used to be more popular, but now it's hard to find (without driving to Montreal where it's in every store). A good friend loves it. Any ideas as to where it might be found?
