More fall foraging: hickory nuts

danna | Oct 12, 200502:16 PM

On the way home from a run last night, I gathered up a bunch of nuts...from tasting one that was cracked, I thought it was a black walnut, but DH informs me they are hickory nuts. The tree is in upstate SC.

They look to be a nightmare to crack and pick, i wonder if there are any tricks? What if I roast them for a bit first?

Assuming I gather some nut meats , any suggestions on delicious things to do with them that might lend themselves to this type of nut? I don't want to just bury the flavor in banana bread, or the like.
