Bunya Nuts! We have just found these - our first from our bunya pine trees which must be about 10 years old I think.
Down the back of our 5 acres, we planted a grove of Bunya and Norfolk Island pines - about 8 in total. They are now pretty big and beautiful and have produced quite a few of these.
Each one is fairly heavy and obviously break in impact after dropping about 5 metres at my guesstimate. The large complete one in the middle weighs 1.47 kg! I certainly wouldn't want one dropped on my head! Spikey and heavy.
Now I'll have to look up some recipes. I should be familiar with some as we have visited the Bunya Mountains quite a few times and the restaurant there features bunya nuts quite a bit. From memory they are quite soft inside the kernel which has to be cooked first.

No much decluttering going on, but I have sold a few things on ebay. They were bigger bits of furniture - so the place is looking a little clearer - which is great.
I've had a bit of a playaround and changed the look of the blog a bit - what do you think?? I think I'm happy with it..... and I've even learnt how to link - wonders will never cease!
