I always remember having a big bowl full of mixed nuts on our table during the holidays, the nut cracker & pick at the ready. I also remember having a hard time getting all the meat out of those tough shelled Brazil nuts.
While looking through my Grandmother’s recipe box this morning, I found this little tip she had jotted down on how to easily shell Brazil nuts.
How to shell Brazil nuts
- Place the nuts in a pan and cover with cold water.
- Bring to a boil and boil 3 minutes.
