Great article! Every year as I feel the crunch of hickory nuts beneath my feet it comes to mind that there must be a good use for them. My cousin, an Eagle Scout, used to say the nuts are edible. I've never had the courage to try them, although one of my dogs likes them. Unfortunately, that batch of syrup from the many shagbark hickories in my yard will have to wait until next year. The nuts, which fell at the end of August, are all crunched down to a mulch by now.
Thanks! You paint nice picture, I'd enjoy a walk under those hickories. and I am the same about my unidentified hickories' nuts.
But if you have the trees you have the real deal shagbark bark--go for it!
