    All I can say is rush out and buy that nutcracker as fast as you can! Otherwise you may end up like me, with a bag of freshly picked walnuts from the farmers market, sitting on the bench top for 2 months and eventually being given away, uncracked.I hunted for a nutcracker that I really really liked. You know what? I should have just bought the $2 job from the supermarket!!

    That’s a good idea, Plum. I’ve the walnuts sitting in a wooden bowl on the bench at the moment, next to the fruit, and they’re looking at me reproachfully every time I grab an apple or a tamarillo. I’ve been looking out for a second-hand nutcracker in our local charity shop recently – and even held out on buying the nuts for ages – but you’re right. It’s time to go to the supermarket and buy something cheap and usable. I’m looking forward to freshly cracked walnuts!
