They really are good...quick way to eat them is to cut an X at the top and pop them in the microwave for three minutes....

Man, one of my favorite things about late fall is the availability of chestnuts! My mom always made chestnut stuffing for Christmas and/or Thanksgiving turkeys and I can eat them every day and not tire of them. Of course one needs to eat the good ones, not "horse chestnuts". Most I get in the stores here are imported from Italy and they must have had a great year since I have bought a few batches with very few bad ones.

Creaky, I'll have to try that!! I always split them and then roast in oven at 550 degrees for an hour wrapped in foil which I added a little water to.

A local market has barrels of them,9.99/lb.I sit and eat them as fast as I can hull them.

Beautiful picture
I have to get a few next time I’m shopping ,I never tried them..
As young kids there was a massive tree up the road from us.
I recall the sharp spikes on their shells and some would take the nuts and make necklaces

as a kid I chewed on at least one. never been a big fan of any kind of nuts,
but as a kid I even tried an acorn. from what I remember, besides salted peanuts they all tasted the same .

there are 4 big old chestnut trees in my nephews hotel yard .
honestly I doubt anyone thinks about roasting them these days :dontknow:
