The fruit would probably be bitter, but the nut inside would most likely be ok.
I really don't know, though. I've heard of people roasting them on an open fire at Christmas :-)

sorry smokey, i should of been more clear that i was just talking about the nuts inside. years ago roasting them at christmas was pretty popular around here, now not so much.
 
My buddy said it's likely a hickory tree .. a shagbark hickory or a bitternut hickory. He's looking at it on his phone though.
