An Easy Way to Open Shagbark Hickory Nuts
From hard shelled shagbark hickory nuts ---
to a bowl of split in half shagbark hickory nuts ---
To perfect pieces of half nuts rather than a bunch of little squashed pieces ----
Carya ovata - Shagbark Hickory. Also called scalybark hickory.
Gather the nuts from mid September to mid October before the squirrels and chipmunks can get them.
One area I have a lot of success at is a picnic area that has several pavillions. The nuts fall, roll off the roof and gather pretty much in the same area in the grass.
