Evan and Charlie Sahadi
Charlie Sahadi owns Sahadi's Fine Foods on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Along with their vast selection of nuts, olives, feta cheese and dried fruit, Sahadi's has fresh almonds in stock. The nut hasn't formed yet and the outside shell is still soft. Dip it in salt before eating.
Also in the store is dried molokheiya, which comes from the jute tree. Mix it with lamb or vegetable broth and coriander. Use it to make a soup or gravy over chicken and rice.
