I love the shape of the nuts in their husks as a cluster. I tried to get some pictures below.
Only time will tell if the nuts will finish ripening as they dry and whether they will store well.
I remembered that I still had lots of nuts in the cupboard from last year. I experimented with some rapid nut cracking using a hammer and the nuts on a wooden board. After a few minutes practice and with a helper we were getting through them at a fair rate and soon had a few hundred. Even though they had been stored for a year they were still really tasty, especially when roasted for about 10 mins at 180 oC.
