For many years now MNGA members have been exploring the realms of black walnut processing; anyone whose grown or collected black walnuts before knows this to be the major challenge—first removing the husk and then extracting the tasty nut from the thick shell. The following video shows one version of a DIY black walnut husker. This original walnut husker was built by Elwin Foote back in the 1970’s. It has since been restored and brought back into use by the association. Stay tuned for future posts about black walnut crackers.
