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 
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 
kind of nuts are a poor substitute.
