The Walnuts’ Revenge

The practice of driving over nuts with an automobile can be a dangerous one.

That is among the many helpful tips regarding provided by the University of Minnesota Extension Service, which is provided in turn by my excellent researcher of a sister.

The Extension also says this:

Preparing black walnuts for baking involves several steps: harvest, hulling, curing, cracking and storage. Many people, however, find the time and effort well worth it.

So, what have we learned? Cure nuts for at least two weeks … reader Mike says more, realistically. A “small portable cement mixer” is an excellent way to dehusk nuts. And, I repeat, do not drive over nuts with the automobile.

Not even when you think they really deserve it.
