When it comes to cracking nuts we know a thing or two.
We designed our cast iron nut cracker to crack as many types of shelled nut as possible and even amended the design to accommodate some of the largest walnuts and smallest hazelnuts.
A great feature of this nut cracker is that it has a built in catching bowl around the cracker which catches all those shells and bits that you don't want all over your floor.
It is cast in solid cast iron which is hard and durable and makes cracking nuts one of the easiest activities to have fun with in your kitchen.
Not only that, the design is beautiful and so we are sure you will want to keep this ornamental device on show all year round. Anyway lets get to our top 5 nuts for cracking in this fab cast iron nut cracker.
It has to be the Walnut, not only healthy and nutritious as all nuts are (by the way but the Walnut it is said will protect your brain). So it gets our No. 1 spot every time. It's easy to crack in all sizes using our cracker.
2. Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts, packed with selenium they are good for your mood and although the shells are tougher and a tricky shape they crack perfectly well under the cast iron cracking plate.
Hazelnuts, these are small and sweet and we love them, what better reason to put them at no 3. Our cracking plate screws all the way down and so these little sweeties are no problem.
Pecan nuts are chewy and buttery and so delightful when cooked with Brussels sprouts (see the recipe below). Just perfect with a Christmas roast or absolutely delicious straight from the shell.
Macadamia nuts are sweet and great to use if you are on a gluten free diet as they are free from gluten and yet provide your body with some great vitamins and minerals including many B vitamins.
So there's our top 5 cracking nuts, so what are you waiting for? Go get cracking with your new nut cracker and don't forget to try out the recipe below.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pecans
- 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
- 1 cup freshly cracked pecans, roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- Salt and black pepper
- Heat oven to 400° F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss Brussels sprouts, freshly cracked pecans, oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Turn the Brussels sprouts cut-side down.
- Roast for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until the Brussels sprouts are golden and tender.
