Pinon Pine Nut Cracking!
Does anybody have good techniques they use to deshell these SOBs in a timely fashion?
I'd say I have a half gallon to a gallon of the nuts... they just take a while to crack efficiently. My friend developed a cranking mechanism with a tiny little hopper that feeds them into the gear to crack them, but since a lot of them are different sizes, it only cracks about 60 percent of them.
Any thoughts? heating with agitation? who knows...??
Thanks, I'm hungry!
