Ginkgo Nuts

My sister (in New Zealand) calls them `poo berries` because they smell so bad when they are squashed all over the pavement.



In Japan they are called ginnan 銀杏 (ギンナン), they are an autumnal delicacy and I just adore them...



Last night they were a big part of our yummy dinner at an Izakaya we went to in Umeda. Harvest season is undoubtedly the best time in Japan to eat out. So fresh, so delicious!
