Ginkgo Nut Gathering

Went ginkgo nut gathering to a nearby field. The field happened to be closed off in preparation for some festival, so we searched around the fence. I guess we were a bit late, for there weren't much left on the ground. My husband was saying the trees were heavy with ginkgo fruit last week, but I saw none up in the trees today. Still we managed to collect 50~60 nuts. The nuts are inside the orange ginkgo fruit, which smells like sh*t(!) and could be irritating for sensitive skin. After removing the pulp, I'll dry the nuts in the sun. Searching the net, I found an easy way of cooking the nuts:
Put the ginkgo nuts in an envelope (some suggests you crack the shell beforehand), and microwave for approxmately 1 minute. Serve with salt.
