Just what exactly is a burl? What would one do with one, if he knew what it was? What do they taste like? Can you make wine of them? What particular tree does it come from? Is this some strange Norwegian custom, like snipe hunting?

Found this definition - A burl is wood cut from a large, rounded growth on a tree. Burl has strong, distinctive grain and is used as a special veneer.
