Finally I decided to buy some chestnuts this year. Over the past four years I received email from this Chestnut Farm but I did not buy any because the ones I prefer the large ones were above my budget.
This year I said “Oh well I have to treat myself to some chestnuts!”
While living in France as a child we did have chestnuts sometimes. Chestnuts are much more affordable in France, at least during my childhood. Growing Marrons is a common thing in France. The French are crazy about Chestnuts and they are grown all over. They make a lot of other things from chestnuts, puree, canned chestnuts, chestnut flour and so on. So Chestnuts are a food staple in France. We had them and I loved them. In Germany they are called
Esskastanien. There are also non eatable version called Rosskastanian and they are used for medicinal purposes. Great for salves that fight varicose veins.
My mom did not roast them she boiled them and that is what I prefer. I called her the other day and asked her exactly how she did it.
So I went on to buy 8 pounds of large marrons costing me about 60 dollars.
When they arrived I felt so happy. So many memories of having sweet succulent boiled chestnuts came flooding back. Isn’t it funny how food can do that.
