When the Native Americans open the nuts, they put the nuts in these stones and then hit them with another stone, which is called the “hammer stone.” And often they ate the nuts as a whole. The history of salted and toasted nuts states that they also used to use a pestle or mortar to make butter or flour from the nuts. The nuts are nuts, chestnuts, beech nuts, and walnuts (walnuts). The peels of the nuts were used as fuel to start a fire, and most of the time they cooked the kernel of the nuts and then took the frozen fats after the broth cooled down for later cooking.
