Last year, just before Christmas, I bought this huge bag of local hazelnuts. We ate quite a few at first, and then put them away until last week, when I got them out again. The kids loved cracking them in the new Spring weather and we didn't run into a single bad one all afternoon!
No fancy nut crackers here... our cracker of choice? A big rock and the patio. You have to get the pressure just right, but it works great!

"In this vision he showed me a little thing, the size of a hazelnut, and it
was round as a ball. I looked at it with the eye of my understanding and
thought "What may this be?" And it was generally answered thus: "It is all that is
made." I marvelled how it might last, for it seemed it might suddenly have
sunk into nothing because of its littleness. And I was answered in my
understanding: "It lasts and ever shall, because God loves it."

I love this quote and when I saw your photo, I wanted to share it!
