Raw Pili Nuts by Ritual
From Sorsogon, Bicol
The pili tree is fatty and resinous. It is highly nutritious, and very delicious. Used widely in tarts, cookies, and all sorts of native delicacies, it is now finding new places in salads, nut milks, pestos and sophisticated pastries. These nuts are raw and soaked, then dehydrated. Have fun with it—it is the fattiest nut on the planet!
