    From my own experience as a child, it has to wear off. Always wear gloves when hulling walnuts!

    the oil doesn't work, but I plan on making a walnut pie (pecan pie but with walnuts instead) for thanksgiving and I love putting them in chocolate chip cookies and in my grandma's cinnamon rolls before baking, and of course sprinkling crushed ones on top of the icing!

    When we lived in our house, we would spread the walnuts in the driveway and drive over them when going in and out of the drive. Be sure to get them picked up before the squirrels get them. That happened to us 1 yr. The little rascals took every single one. Oh, were we ticked. LOL Why ours when they had a whole city park full just a block away.?

    If you don't have any ask your neighbor for some green tomates and then rub it in your hands.

    Yes I've got a great recipe. I will post it in the Recipe section. It's a Black Walnut Chiffon Cake. We used to have a drive-in restuarant near us, but it is closed now. My Aunt made all the cakes for the restaurant. Cake is really delicious.

    We have a black walnut tree and there is nothing that takes it off. We have tracked them in on our beigh carpet and it is there to stay. We don't use the nuts, the squirrels get them all, that I don't pick up. They are a messy tree but it is such a big beautiful tree, I hate to cut it down. My husband has threatened for years to chop it down, but I wont let him. He really hates the tree and I am about to give in to letting him get it cut. It is so messy.

    I'm sure glad YOU have those black walnuts!!!! My grandma & aunts loved them but I could never stand them, unfortunately!! The trees, however are lovely, & the wood is absolutely gorgeous!!!!! As fo getting the stains out of your skin, I'd also suggest mechanics Goop & time.

    The green ones were always thrown in the farm lane for the cars and tractors to run over to get the green off. Then the kids had to gather them up and crack them out so if there was any left, grandmom would make applesauce cookies. yum!

    and banana nut bread and divinity, yum. Also had some type of fungus on one of my fingers as a child. My granddad said to scrape/pulverize a green hull and spread it on the area & bandage it. Continue til wound was gone. Well it took only a few days and it was cleared. Some think that the hull has iodine in it. Don't know the pharmacology of a walnut hull, but "whatever" it worked. He also said that this was good for warts.Sad that I haven't seen any in Houston area or central Texas. The ones I have bought in stores always seem rancid.

    Well you would think I would know, cause my grandparents had black walnut trees on their farm. Boy, I remember shelling about a ton of those things every year for Christmas baking. I sure don't remember how we got our hands clean though. Probably just let it go away slowly with dish washing and all! Makes me homesick for the old days...
