Chestnuts are a seasonally available seed of the chestnut tree that has become immortalized as a quintessential autumn and winter food. Chestnuts have a soft interior that is sweet, nutty, and mild with a rich, meaty texture. Chestnuts have a variety of uses and are delicious boiled, steamed, baked, mashed, and more. Their iconic flavor is best representing by roasting.
Uses: Score chestnuts with a small knife to prevent explosions when cooking. Cook chestnuts as desired until the insides are tender by checking with a toothpick or knife.
