Have you ever eaten roasted chestnuts?
I wouldn’t go so far as to call them “creamy and sensuous” as one website did, but they are quite delectable. You have to be okay with a soft nut texture, almost like a boiled peanut. Here’s the basic roasting recipe–of course you can then salt them, or caramelize them, or chop them up for stews and stuffings…
We’ve been harvesting a bounty from under our trees, and have more than we can eat. They’re large, firm, and in perfect condition; no sprays or artificial treatments.
Anyone love chestnuts or want to give them a try?
I’m offering a free tin of them to one of you! Just leave a comment telling me why you want them and I’ll enter you in a random drawing. Unless of course the boiled peanut idea scares everyone else off and you’re the only one who’s into chestnuts! Then you’re automatically the winner; now how simple is that?
Open to US residents only. Drawing closes on Tuesday, November 12, 2013.
