What is this morning market item?

Recommended Posts

I purchased some of these at the morning market in Luang Prabang, Laos. 

They sort of look like truffles, but they are hard as a rock, and there does not appear to be anything loose rattling inside (like a seed). I bought them thinking I could figure out what they are and how to cook with them, but so far, no Thai I have asked knows what they are. 

Any ideas?

rebo nailed it. I assume they are sold so people can use their sledgehammers and get at the nuts inside to eat....

Some kind of fungus?  The two on the right look like very dirty walnuts, but the other two look like rocks.  So who knows.  🙂
