Hello Friend. I love fruit trees too. You're right! That is what they should teach us in school because look, it makes and an apple and a nut attached right onto it. That is bizarre! And all those flowers mean the tree has only started making apples with a nut on them.
Like a rare alien plant from another world and here we put them in a jars with regular nuts.
I tried that toffee theory in imitation of Enstrom candy company but I used cashews instead of almonds and it worked. This is exactly how I recall Enstrom's except mine has rare alien otherworldly nuts and theirs has ordinary Earthly almonds. Almonds are like the carrots of the nut world. Apparently more healthy than most so they always get top billing at least that is the story that told, so stuck in things all over the place, and yet here we have this evident life from another world.
I still want to try hazelnut. Mostly because that is my dad's all-time favorite nut and I'm trying to understand the man.
