Ginkgo nuts

Eunhaeng 은행

A late-fall delicacy, ginkgo nuts enrich and garnish sweet and savory dishes. I usually buy them shelled since they are too easily crushed when you shell them yourself. When cooked, ginkgo nuts turn a beautiful jade color.

You’ll find them in the refrigerated produce section in season or in the freezer section of Korean grocery stores year-round. You can also forage for them in the fall if there’s a ginkgo tree near you. Just wait for the seeds to drop and then pick them up!
