Smelt nuts?

Molly Symmonds | Feb 6, 2003 11:50 AM

I just read a piece in yesterday's Chicago Sun-Times about the much-missed Busy Bee Diner, which served Polish food and closed in '98. The writer of *The New Polish Cuisine*, in an interview that appeared, in part, in the article, said: "I remember going there [The Busy Bee] with my grandfather, who had a store on Milwaukee Avenue where he made smelt nuts by hand."

Anyone know what this is? If the smelt here are fish, this sounds dreadful.
