>A few days ago someone posted an inquiry on the NAFEX discussion list about 
>processing ginko nuts.  (Actually, I believe it was about pickling ginko 
>nuts, but I've not been able to find a source of info on this.)  Directions 
>for preparing ginko nuts to eat, unpickled, may be found at 
>http://www.treesforyou.org/Selection/Articles/ginkos.htm .
>We have many Asian groceries in Saint Paul and I've never seen pickled 
>ginko nuts.  However, one can find them canned, packed in brine.  If I were 
>to do this at home, I'd go through the process as outlined in 
>http://www.treesforyou.org/Selection/Articles/ginkos.htm and then pressure 
>can them, in water to which salt and ascorbic acid have been added, as one 
>would process fresh green beans.
