Walnut failure!

Back in October I collected a basketful of walnuts. According to my research, in order to store them I had to remove all the flesh and then dry the nuts in their shells, after which they would keep for many months...

I've just cracked them open (with a hammer - my nutcracker was not powerful enough) and they're all completely dried out inside, with only the teensiest little nuts that wouldn't even feed a mouse :(

  1. Hmm seems to say husk them, dry them then freeze them though one site says you can do that for long periods if shelled but shorter if not.
    You can try again next time
