Ginkgo seeds...  
I posted the below question to three other communities, but have gotten no answers. I'm wondering if anyone here has some suggestions to share?

Does anyone have any recipe or preservation suggestions for fresh Ginkgo seeds? I have a bunch drying on my counter. Tomorrow I plan to crack the inner shells and from there I haven't decided. I could roast or fry and then freeze them. I think I could just freeze them and then cook them as I need them, but am not sure. This is my first opportunity to use Ginkgo seeds, so I welcome any suggestions you may have.

Cross-posted to apothecarium, kitchen_witch, wildfoods, and my journal.

I don't know how to preserve them, but could you send me some? I've been wanting to find some viable seed for a while now, I haven't been able to find any female trees...

Gingko seeds
Mine were kept in a zip lock with a small folded wet paper towel, in the fridge. This was to save them for planting. Every day or two I was too shake them around a little and keep them from drying out. I have since planted all 250 seeds. ~Cat
