How to Grate Parmesan in Less than One Minute

Begin by cutting a wedge of your preferred Parmesan cheese. Make numerous cubes of cheese. No specific knife expertise is required!

Toss the cubes into the blender and pulse until the cheese is broken down into your desired size. That’s it. No special equipment or hand grating that wedge of Parmesan.

If you have any leftover grated Parmesan you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to seven days.

Inspect the Quality of Walnuts

Inspect the walnuts, checking for any cracked shells, and discard any that show signs of damage or pests.

Dry the Nuts

Lay the nuts out on a screen or rack and place them somewhere that is warm and dry and away from pests. Allow them to air dry for two weeks.

Test for Dryness

Remove several nuts from their shells, and try to break them in half. If they break cleanly, then the nuts are dry and ready to eat.
