vertical line Why Mr. Woodman suddenly got into the shell, turned into a nut that cannot get out of the shell itself; now crying for help like this?  Does anyone of you know?

vertical line So, how many hours is several? Like 4 or 40? I don't wanna sink these nuts, I wanna eat 'em, whole, so I don't waste. And yes, I do compost all the organics. There must be another method. Any nut specialists in the forum. Speak up!

I have to go watch a Martin Luther movie. Maybe he knew how to crack nuts, better than Chon Tri, didn't.

vertical line Brazil Nuts

To remove Brazil nuts, bake them at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or freeze. Crack and shell.

found this too:

Shell hard-to-open Brazil nuts by first dropping them in boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove and crack after they have cooled.

Ms. Lehish has just shown her experience of cracking Brazil nut, Mr. Woodsman's immediately going to verify it.  If Mr. Woodsman succeeds, he will be no more nuts because he'll eat them all.

It takes a few hours for the stove top  water to boil., I'm thinking sometime this afternoon, not the top of my list, but it's there, or will be, but not immeditely. Expect a report by 1700. And it will be... Nuts for everybody, and mr. chontri, if he desires. Not! Nut!

Mr. ChonTri desires no nuts like Mr. Woodsman who desires nuts and gets nut.  And because Mr. Woodsman gets nut, so he needs to eat nuts to cure his nut.

The word "being" used here comes from ChonTri and it just means "being".

Only so that he could resemble the shape and appearance of a buddhists monks head.
