Starting in the Fall, you should be able to find them in your local supermarket in the produce department. They are sold lose and you pick out the ones you want yourself. My mother used to make sage/chestnut stuffing for the chicken. What nuts she didn't use she roasted for me. If you google 'chestnuts' you should be able to find plenty of recipes.

you may need to fertilize and water your tree for more plump, zaftig chestnuts that'll roast better.

yes, i know. improper english. but they are chest-nuts.

besides london, it ain't christmas without a charcoal grilled bag of chestnuts and smokey, salty pretzel from a street vendor near the rock center tree.

Boil fresh slashed chestnuts for 1 -2 minutes. Bake for 15 minutes at 450F (235C).
