For the past few years, walnuts have been a part of my daily diet. Unfortunately today I encountered a rather unpleasant experience with them.
I buy them usually from organic or grocery stores, and get them in the "halves" form. I keep them in a plastic bag in the cupboard for maybe 2 months or so. I am currently living in Holland and have been purchasing them from a local Turkish shop.
Today when I was measuring the nuts, they looked like they had something coming out of the center (of the half) like a sawdust weird material. I brushed it off, and then saw a tiny worm crawling around the nut! I threw the whole bag away. This bag of nuts is maybe 2 weeks old.. what's the deal?
I've been trying to read up on this and see that walnuts do get infested. I can only imagine how many times I've overlooked the pieces and have eaten worms, bugs, or whatever dwells in the walnut.
I don't know if I can bring myself to eat them again... I am itching just thinking about it.
