Water Caltrops

These are a type of water chestnut. They are really hard to eat and upon introduction I noticed an odd aroma. A pure stink. They grow at the bottoms of lakes and kind of anchor down a plant that grows to the surface of the water. Most commonly you will find these during the Chinese Lantern or Mooncake Festival- also known as "a time for lovers".
