Ask the Old Fanner; Could you tell me how to open butter
nuts? I've tried a hammer and got nothing but mashed but
ternuts There must be an easier way GJ, Akron, Ohio
I had an old uncle who got so discouraged trying to crack butter
nuts with a hammer that he chopped down his trees Only way
we know is use a small vise Turn it until you just crack the shell,
reverse the nut, and repeat until you can pick the shell apart

Good Morning. The market
today is slow to fair and prices are
still remaining steady. Supplies
are very good. With the exception
of a few of the larger growers,
picking is finished and those
supplies should be decreasing.
With cold weather finally here,
growers polled hope that sales
should begin to pick up.
Export sales are continuing at a
good pace. Shipments are being
made to Brazil, Trinidad, Panama,
Columbia and England.
Prices quoted are wholesale,
