hedge apple and other firings

A quick question about the hedge apple. Do you just set the green fruit on
or in the pot or do you let it dry out? I have a yard full of hedge apples
and it's nice to know I can actually use them for something. They've always
been compost until now.
Another thought I pondered as I was seeing the chipmunks shell the peanuts
and leave the shells at the park we stayed at in Colorado. Has anyone tried
using the shells from salted peanuts to use for a firing? The salt can do
lovely things and just curious if this has been tried and if so, what the
results were.
