Yesterday we had fun making a popular Ohio treat--buckeyes. The buckeye is the nut on a buckeye or white chesnut tree. They are brown and have whitish scar on the top. Some believe buckeyes are good luck, especially if you keep it in your pocket. Buckeyes are also the mascot of The Ohio State University.
Buckeyes are poisonous, or so wikipedia tells me. So people make candy buckeyes instead. They are delicious and a unique and tasty treat special to Ohio. Please come our way and enjoy a homemade Ohio Buckeye on us!
