Chestnuts : does anyone actually eat 'em?

There they are in the grocery store. Probably the same ones that were there last year.

Well the Klubmasta eats 'em, but that doesn't seem like enough of a market for the chestnut industry if you ask me....

Our unsold chestnuts probably get exported to Switzerland. Geezus, they sure do love to eat chestnut vermicelli for dessert. First time I saw it I thought it was chocolate. Nope, definitely not.

Chestnuts are very popular in Italian culture, especially at this time of year.
When I visited New York City as a kid I remember there were huge numbers of old italian guys on the streets roasting them with their chestnut roasting carts.

Chestnuts were all over Italy when I was there last month. The Swiss have an interesting take on chestnuts; they use it as a pureed dessert topping.

I love them. Wish we had street vendors roasting them like Vancouver does. There used to be a guy across the ROM many years ago.
