Unorthodox Techniques (Part 1: How to Crush Walnuts)

Something tells me there’s a more proper method for crushing walnuts. I, however, prefer to use the back of a tablespoon.

It works. That’s what counts.

Valentine’s Day baking photos tomorrow.

    I’m sure most professional chefs would laugh at some of my preparation methods.
    Sounds like we both went Valentine baking crazy…can’t wait to see what you made!

    Case in point for the mortar and pestal :)

    I know you posted this like 2 1/2 months ago, but if I need to crush a lot of walnuts? I put them in a ziplock bag and kill it with my hammer.

    Point. I’m a fan of the freezer-bag-and-hammer or the freezer-bag-and-meat-mallet method as well. This just works better if you need a small amount for sprinkling.
