Sounds like you are making similar little gifts as our girls get at school. I've found that old walnuts are easier than fresh ones. I've opened them by wedging a knife into the crack and holding my breath.....


ooooo. wish i could help. max looks awesome in that hat. famous boy!




Hmmm. I halved walnuts for the Columbus Day boats we made last year, and it's tricky, but you should be able to manage it. Maybe you do have fragile walnuts! I squeeze around the middle of the walnut with a supermarket-style nutcracker, and when it starts to open a little, I stick the tip of a knife in there and loosen from the inside. Will try aging and baking them next time myself! Fun project, too!
