Hickory Nuts are a beneficial for me. Finding hickory nuts in a grocery store is problematic, even though I live in a hickory forest...  (yeah, don't ask) I'm not going to pick them ...

So I looked them up and discovered that the most common commercial name for Hickory Nuts (as in the preferred variety) is PECAN.

Pecans are an avoid for me.  

If pecans are hickory nuts, why are pecans an avoid and hickory nuts a beneficial?

They are not the same nut, I've had both growing in the same yard before. The leaves don't even look the same.

GC is right. Hickory nuts are totally awesome and you can use them just like pecans that is if you can beat the squirrels to them first :D

You can buy hickory nuts from flatlandalpacas in etsy.com.  

When I was eating hickory nuts (don't do it anymore, too little nut meat and too much work) I soaked my hickory nuts in water in a glass jar for 48 hours.  After 24 hours of soaking I emptied out the soaking water and put fresh soaking water into the jar.  After the 48 hours of soaking I placed the hickory nut in a nutcracker, towards the top of the nutcracker, lined up on the vertical crack.  I placed one hand around the nutcracker at the top to hold the nut in place and squeezed the nutcracker with the other hand.  The hickory nuts opened quickly and cleanly into two halves.  I then used a metal hook that came with the nutcracker at the time of purchase to remove the nut kernel.  

BTW, it appears you are using BT classifications in spite of knowing your genotype.  The genotype classifications are more accurate.  Any reason why you are using BT instead of Genotype?
