Ginko nut recipes?

A local market has in-shell ginko (ginkgo) nuts. I understand that they are also sold shelled or canned in brine.

This site which has a recipe for ginko nuts with chicken says "Ginkgo nuts are used in soups, stuffings, desserts, dishes containing meat and poultry, and vegetarian dishes, as well."

It seems the most common mention on their use on Chowhound has been to boil them in congee. This also has a mention of ginko nuts in almond tea.

So ... if in congee ... what type ... canned? Do you just boil it all up together? Do you think this would work with oatmeal?

What other recipes do you have for ginko nuts .. fresh, shelled or brined.

More info about ginko nuts on the General Board.
