Shelling pine nuts

JerryMe | Jan 17, 2010 10:56 AM

I got a bag of fairly inexpensive whole pine nuts (pinon nuts) off the Indian reservation. They were not shelled and I thot no big deal. I can shell them when I get home. Well, I've tried a regular nut cracker and I've tried a small plier. All I'm getting are crushed nuts that I have to pick the pieces of shell out of. Obviously, the nut is still edible, but I'm attempting to get the nut out whole!

So, dear Chowhounds, I'm hoping someone out there has had success with this endeavor and can point me to the proper tool (perhaps technique?) that will allow me to salvage these nuts whole so I can proceed to toast them and add them to delectable delights.
