How do I get pine nuts from wild pine cones?

    First, “Harvest pine nuts in the late summer to late fall. This is when the pine cones are ready to be picked. If the pine cone is open, the nuts can be shaken out of the pine cone immediately. If the pine cone is closed you must open it before you can remove the nuts.”

    Pine cones that are unopened, or green, can be opened by simply spreading them out and allowing them to dry.  It should take about a week for them to completely dry out and open up.  For the cones that are already open, an easy way to collect the nuts is to lay a large blanket on the ground, and then just knock the pine cones onto the blanket.  Ideally, the loose nuts will fall on the blanket, and the ones that do not can easily be picked up off the ground.
