Heavy duty nutcracker for Black Walnuts

sandpiper | Oct 15, 2006 04:34 PM

Can anyone recommend a heavy duty nutcracker for shelling black walnuts, or offer any tips on how to remove the hulls and shells?

I have a friend in MN who has lots of black walnuts dropping from his trees, but just throws them away as they are messy and the shells are really hard, so I'm hoping the chowhounds know of a good method for him. I hate to see nuts go to waste.
