Rock hard and as dense as a neutron star, they must be slow-cooked for hours before becoming palatable. Or they can be reduced to quince jelly – or Membrillo in Spain – and spread on Manchego cheese (best option).
Musing: If one of these had landed on Sir Isaac Newton’s head, we’d not have the law of gravity: Newt would be dead.
Musing 2: Without Newton’s law of gravity, would we all be floating around by now? If so, it would probably be legal too – though hard for the government to tax. Perhaps you’d need a Floating Around licence.
