Guess what's in this photo, and you'll be entered to win a bunch of goodies that I found in my winter travels to Israel: chai rose tea, rose incense and maybe even some perfume if I'm lucky - I still have a few more days here to scout some fragrant surprises.

Merry Christmas!

Pine nuts? They looks different from the ones I grew up with (in northern New Mexico) but that's my best guess.

Thank you for everyone who's guessed!
The correct answer is pine nuts, from the stone pine to be exact.
These were collected from the ground, so they are dirtier and really reminded me of cacao beans. So I thought it would make a nice little guessing challenge.

Yay! I love pine nuts, always hunted them, opened them with two stones and ate them in the stone pine forests close to the beach when I was a child, good memories :))
