Sandal wood nuts

The Sandalwood Shop Response
Hi Robyn, Yes most certainly, sandalwood nuts are available from our outlet in Albany at 2 Down Rd. We have two types on offer, plain roasted sandalwood nuts or 'Gobbles' which is the slightly sweet and savoury option- perfect as a ready to eat snack. For this recipe, it is a good idea to go for the plain roasted variety so that the natural flavours of mango and avocado are allowed to come through naturally. Hope this helps. Kind regards, G.R from The Sandalwood Shop team.
