How to Crack a Peanut. Whether you are out a baseball game or just looking for a quick snack, eating peanuts is always a lot of fun. These crunchy treats are surrounded by a hardened shell that hold anywhere from 1 to 3 nuts inside. Here are some tips on how to crack a peanut for your next snack.
Place the peanut between your finger tips.
Apply pressure to the peanut by squeezing your fingers until you feel the outside of the shell break.
Hold the cracked peanut in the palm of your hand and remove the nuts from the shell. A lot of times they will fall right out. Other times, you will need to remove additional pieces of shell to access the nut.
Repeat the process over and over with more peanuts until you've had your fill.
