But when I went into the bathroom all I saw were picture of bands from the 90s—Pearl Jam and husker Du.
The cleanly husked nuts drop into a basket at the end of the husker.
The nuts are gathered into bushel baskets and hauled in a pick-up truck to the husker.
These stalks may always be saved by the use of the husker and shredder.
The nuts are run through the husker a couple of times to assure a clean job of husking.
The shredder and husker turns the hitherto useless cornstalk into food, and at the same time husks, or shucks, the corn.
Corn after being matured and cut can be put in shocks and left thus until dry enough to run through the husker and shredder.
1780, agent noun from husk (v.). Cornhuskers as a nickname for athletics squads from Nebraska is attested by 1903.
late 14c., huske "dry, outer skin of certain fruits and seeds," of unknown origin, perhaps from Middle Dutch huuskyn "little house, core of fruit, case," diminutive of huus "house," or from an equivalent formation in English (see house). As a verb, attested from 1560s. Related: Husked; husking.
In Num. 6:4 (Heb. zag) it means the "skin" of a grape. In 2 Kings 4:42 (Heb. tsiqlon) it means a "sack" for grain, as rendered in the Revised Version. In Luke 15:16, in the parable of the Prodigal Son, it designates the beans of the carob tree, or Ceratonia siliqua. From the supposition, mistaken, however, that it was on the husks of this tree that John the Baptist fed, it is called "St. John's bread" and "locust tree." This tree is in "February covered with innumerable purple-red pendent blossoms, which ripen in April and May into large crops of pods from 6 to 10 inches long, flat, brown, narrow, and bent like a horn (whence the Greek name keratia, meaning 'little horns'), with a sweetish taste when still unripe. Enormous quantities of these are gathered for sale in various towns and for exportation." "They were eaten as food, though only by the poorest of the poor, in the time of our Lord." The bean is called a "gerah," which is used as the name of the smallest Hebrew weight, twenty of these making a shekel.
