    Not all wild nuts are as flavorful as the ones that you may discover in a store. Some may have an astringency so awful they are too bitter to eat. In other cases prying open their shell may require such fervency that the fruit yielded from it may seem not with the effort. What are some of the most fulfilling types of nuts you've come across while foraging?

    You can go foraging beechnuts during the early autumn. Beechnuts contain oxalic acid, alkaloids and trimethylamine and are therefore toxic. Roasting the nuts reduces the effect of these chemicals and makes beechnuts edible in small quantities. Add them to salads, müsli or vegetables. Apparently, their oil can be used as lamp oil, in theory.
