The Chinese have varieties of Gingko selected specifically for the
seeds, which they boil, or boil and roast. Boiling seems to be a part
of making them fit for human consumption. There is a huge old female
gingko in Salem, Oregon, thought to be one of the first trees started
from seed brought out of China after the species was discovered to
still be alive in China, and though the fruit smells like dog do, the
local Asians collect it all for the seeds every fall.

The person in this Craig's List ad says their family uses gingko seeds
for soup. Does anyone know whether this would be for medicinal
purposes or would it actually taste good?
