A friend brought me some black walnuts, she did crack them. This afternoon I sat down to get the nuts out of the shells. She did not furnish a tool to get them out with so I had use my imagination, first I tried a new nail ( no good ) next I got a crochet hook out of my collection of hooks this is better but, slow as "molasses running up hill."
To let you know how slow I have been picking for more than an hour and I have about 1/4 cup. At this rate I will be doing this task into the Spring. I had hoped to do some Christmas baking using these nuts. Don't hold you breath folks.
