edible seeds

Chinese steamed cake, unknown edible seeds, coffee

i bought these seeds from one of the roadside stalls while travelling in Mongolia. The locals eat them as snacks, munching away as they chat with friends, while waiting for public transport, before dinner is served etc. The shells cracked open easily with a bite, the inside meat is pale yellow wrapped in a thin layer of brown skin and has a slight tint of sweet and raw taste. Quite interesting to eat.

Update: These are actually pine nuts. Thanks Mabel!
