Well, sort of…
Heating them up in your microwave is easier.
We bought this bag of shelled and ready to eat chestnuts at Costco. If you’ve never had a chestnut they are very good, but very unique. They are a soft nut and starchy – like a potato or yam.
We like to heat them briefly in the microwave then add a bit of olive oil and salt. It’s a fun seasonal snack.
Last year we bought whole chestnuts from Trader Joe’s, but the process of getting them ready to eat is more work than these.
Only another month until Vine Street in Paso Robles when we can walk around all bundled up and actually eat one that’s been roasted on an open fire.
Here’s to the holiday season!
