So how are you supposed to eat those things, just gnaw or something? They look sharp, and scary. The way nat king cole sang about these things I expected them to be a little more friendly looking.

You should be able to easily peel off the shell after roasting them :-)

Yeah, what nilasae said. I scored the X's on them before roasting so they wouldn't explode, and you can see the shell curls back under the heat. After roasting, it's easy to peel them off and get to the soft, warm nut-meat inside.

They look warm and fragrant and festive.

If only I could buy them in paper bags and eat them as I walked down the cold, winter street. You know, there's a law against street food in Montréal.

A law against street food? What a shame.

Is it just me, or do they look a little like the pods out of which the face huggers come?

Like this? Yeah, I see a certain resemblance.

They're just a little squatter, if that's a word. Like the aliens infested a planet with really high gravity.
