How to Shell Hard-Shelled Nuts

I have always loved the flavor of Brazil nuts, but they are such a pain to crack whole. Half the time you need to use a pick that comes along with the nutcracker set and then end up not being able to get all of the nut meat out of the shell or, sometimes, end up stabbing your hands trying - LOL!

Well, I finally found the secret to cracking those little puppies easily :-) All you have to do is freeze them for about six hours and then crack them width wise in the center. 99% of the time, you will have a whole nut to enjoy without effort! The reason this works is because it pulls the meat away from the shell. So, do yourself and your company a favor and freeze them before cracking open.
