Last fall, I was fortunate enough to beat the local critters to some of the hazelnuts that blessed our area.  I gathered about 5 lbs worth.  Of course, the husks need to dry before the nuts can be removed reliably.

With an injured ankle, and vigilant family hounding  me to keep from using it, I sat down to remove the now dry husks.  While 5 pounds of nuts sounds like a lot, and looked like a lot with the husks, it fills not much more that a single quart sized jar with the husks removed.

Here they are.  I am half way through the complete process.  Next, I need to shell them.

Life is good!
