Riddle solved: these devil seeds come from water caltrop, Trapa natans. Their 3D shape is pretty unusual, as they have pointy hooks and velvety texture. And they are edible!

Zagadka rozwiązana: te diabelskie nasiona należą do kotewki orzecha wodnego. Każde z nich ma 4 ostre haczyki i aksamitną powierzchnię. No i można je jeść!

Ever see a water caltrop before? Me either. So I made a gelatine mould out of it and cast it in chocolate! #waterchestnut #buffalonut #batnut #devilpod #lingnut #linkok #lingkionut #singhara #watercaltrop #mouldmaking #chocolate #cocoafortunato

This man is selling Indian 'water chestnuts', also known as ling nuts, water caltrops, buffalo nuts, bat nuts and my favourite, devil pods (that's about all the Halloween chat you're going to get from me)! Not to be confused with Chinese water chestnuts, this food is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine and studies have made connections with it having antibacterial and neuroprotective properties. #LingNut #DevilPod #AsHalloweenAsImGoingToGet #Jodhpur #Rajasthan #India

A water caltrop - also known as water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, devil pod, ling nut, and singhara, amongst other names. Apparently the reason water caltrops are eaten as part of the Chinese Mid Autumn festivities (apart from the fact that this is the season for them) is that the Chinese for bat 🦇has the sound 'fu' in it, which is the word for luck. #watercaltrop #buffalonut #batnut #devilpod #lingnut #singhara #菱角 #chinesetradition #midautumnfestival #蝙蝠

A while back, I came across a pair of pods, devil pods, as some call them. They were given to me from a friend of my children's father. I loved them, but I stashed them away, to never see the light of day till just recent, when I unearthed them. So, tonight, I made the first of my Odd Devil Folk. The more I look at him, the more he grows on me. Hahaha!!! Devil Folk WIP made from water caltrop pods, aka Devil pods or nuts, water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, ling nut, lin kok, ling kio nut, and singhara.

Last week to try our Devils Nog coffee mocktail that's featured in the October issue of @pomomagazine! This last batch we made has a more prominent persimmon flavor since they are finally in season. The base of the drink is made using cold brew and a scary looking caltrop called Devils Pod to give it egg nog like depth without actually using eggs, so you can order it vegan. Remember, our mocktails are part of our "for here" drinks only menu because part of the experience is taking your time to enjoy this wonderful affordable luxury we all love called coffee. #devilsnog #portlandmonthly #coffeemocktail #drycoffeecocktail #devilspod #batnut #lingnut #hailsatan #666 #halloweendrinks #witchcraft #satanlovescoffee
