Ginkgo tree bear nuts called “Ginnan („Āé„āď„Ā™„āď)”.
Ripening ginnan emits intense smell.¬†But we can eat it deliciously¬†after ¬†remove the pulp.
Ginnan’s typical dish is “Chawan mushi”. It steamed a pudding-style egg containing a ginnan.¬†Besides, we bake and eat the ginnan stuck in the skewer.
By the way, Ginnan resembles a pistachio, but they are trees of another species.
