Cracking Nuts – they are absolutely passionate about nuts, natural ingredients and North Devon!
Cracking Nuts was born in early Spring in 2014 after it struck them just how moorish and tasty the humble nut can be.
They have found a 200 year old German recipe and by experimenting with it a little have come up with a traditional range of sweet cinnamon, salty and chilli roasted peanuts, cashews and almonds, all with our own unique modern twist.
The ancient technologies that have shaped the English countryside for millennia are kept alive today by dedicated people who have become skilled in these ancient crafts.
