Re: In the garden and out


I had an uncle who used to saw black walnuts cross-wise and make buttons of them. But he was always kind of strange.

Do you crack the hickories, Auralie? When I lived in Maryland the first
time, we used to gather them in the fall and crack them in a vise. I
think the meats are quite tasty, especially when added to apples in
pies and cobblers and such.
Not often - too much work. They do have a nice flavor, but they are small,
and the shells
are really thick. One way is to put them into a heavy bag and drive back and
forth over
them a few times. Mainly I give them to my garden club members who say they
are
going to make crafty projects. I have never seen any of these projects
completed, but
maybe they do. But having grown up with huge pecan trees, I really think any
other
kind of nuts are a poor substitute.
