the opposite of the miracle berry: trader joe's pine nuts
everything i've been eating the past few days has tasted just disgusting, and i have a bitter, metallic taste in my mouth that no amount toothpaste or altoids will vanquish. so i google "all of my food tastes bitter" and i get a whole screen full of links to blogs complaining about the aftermath of eating trader joe's pine nuts. then i remembered that a few days ago, i made roasted asparagus and topped them with tj's pine nuts. apparently the effect can last for days or weeks. the kind grown in italy don't do this, but according to what i've read, the ones from asia are notorious for leaving the mouth coated with a bitter oil that takes forever to go away.
does anyone else have this problem?
