I "Popped Out" one of those big Hickory Nuts. I picked a smaller one that had a bug hole in the hull, thinking it probably made it inside.
Nope. It was fine.
Just Look at how well it came out of the Shell...just used a Hammer on a Rock.
If y'all ever cracked out Hickory nuts, you already know some are difficult. Some trees are consistently easier than others.
I saw the pic before I read the post. I have to admit, I thought I was going to read Tankt found another surprise on his way to the coffee maker.
