Foraging for nuts & wishing I had guts!
Oh, how lucky am I to have a Hubby who will go out foraging for pecans, hecans and hickory nuts. He even takes the time to crack them and meticulously work to pick out all the little pieces. Then we store them in the freezer. I get the easy, less time consuming part: baking the nuts into brownies, cookies, breads, cakes and pies. And I don't have to go out into the cold for my part. David Lebovitz has a recipe on his site today for Chocolate Persimmon Muffins. I can't imagine eating persimmons, but there are some trees around here we could forage from, if I just had the guts to try!
