Brazil Nuts

(1/3) > >>

'Tis the season for mixed nuts in the shells for me.  Anyone else have a love-hate relationship with Brazil nuts?

What's the best way to get them out w/o shattering them into pieces?

I've had the best luck using a vise...

Try a hammer and a towel.

dremel  ;D
No seriously, I rarely get more than Half-sized pieces.
C-clamp might be good, I think the problem is that with a nut cracker you carry through so much force from cracking the shell all the way through the nut meat. The C-clamp wouldn't have any follow through.

My wife would love a c-clamp as an accessory to our kitchen drawer.  Or I could mount a vice to the kitchen counter.  ;D

I wonder how the commercial guys do it.
