    So it's months later now, after Easter/Passover, and I can't find hide or hair of any green almonds on the SW side. They must be hiding somewhere ... Got any ideas, folks?

    Don't know about the SW side, but World Fruit Market on Devon has them. BTW, World Fruit is my favorite market on Devon.

    Do any shops in Bridgeview have green almonds? That is the SW side and has a sizable Arab/Middle Eastern population.

    Shopping a new market here in Highland, IN I found two large baskets full of tiny, green, fuzzy fruits. I asked the proprietor what they could be and he advised that they were, in fact, green almonds. He asked me to taste one, and it was beautiful! Crunchy, sour, bright, and it would be nice with a bit of salt. This was my first encounter with them, as improbable as that may seem. I'd be happy with any suggestions for cooking with them, if they manage to survive my snacking.

    Abwein, Palestine March 2010.

    Tons of green almonds in the hills of the West Bank. Probably past their prime by now.

    I was in World Fruit Market this weekend--terrific store. I went to stock up on frozen coconut and roti. But, I was really impressed by the range of products. In addition to an array of Indian ingredients, inexpensive produce (e.g. 2 bunches for $1 flat leaf parsley, 4 for $1 scallions), they had a lot I wouldn't necessarily expect from a small neighborhood grocery story (e.g. full array of Bob's Red Mill products, Nyakers ginger snaps). I spent $24 on 5 bags of groceries--I will definitely be back.

    Hi,

    Green almonds are out now.

    I saw them at Arak Foods in Niles yesterday. You pick what you wanted from a bin for a price of $4.99 per pound.

    At Jerry's Fruit and Garden in Niles, green almonds were prepackaged priced at $2.99 per pound.

    Hi,

    I bought some today at Jerry's Fruit in Niles.

    I plan to pan fry some and pickle the others.

    Hi, Cathy,

    We might go to Jerry's today, and I'm curious about green almonds. Can you please tell where in the store you found them? Bulk or prepackaged?

    HI,

    I believe they were near the apricots, plums and rhubarb. It is the last display of fruit before you walk toward the meat.

    They are prepacked in foam containers.

    Thanks, Cathy, I found them right where you said they are. I'd say that's the "interesting" produce cooler, with things like uncured olives and green dates at times, but there are other interesting spots all over Jerry's.
