Re: Black What!
No, No , you don't dehydrate nuts or roast them in the shell. You can put them in a safe place and use them as you want them of you can crack and pick them now. Putting them in a dry skillet and toast them a little shaking the pan to keep them from burning will bring out the taste or you can put them on a baking sheet ant roast them in the oven to bring out the flavor. Just don't burn them. Then put them in an air tight container and you have walnuts when you want them.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
