We recently leased an additional property in High Springs which has Chestnut trees. We’re looking forward to fall and all of the wonderful things it brings….including these tasty morsels.
Make sure to refrigerate your chestnuts and eat them within 2-3 weeks.
If you want to save them for Thanksgiving, you can either freeze raw or cooked. More info on preserving chestnuts here.
Here are a few recipes collected from around the web.
