Sweet Sweet Chestnuts

We picked up our order of freshly harvested chestnuts today from Preolenna growers Colleen and Daryl at the Burnie Farmer's Market. Colleen has provided information, recipes and storing notes especially for hilbarners and we're looking forward to hearing what you think of your results. We'll be trying them out ourselves tomorrow night and will let you know how we get on. For more information Colleen recommends http://www.chestnutsaustralia.com.au/

I'm going to try this with mine - http://www.epicureantable.com/recipes/C/chestglace.htm - I saw 'marrons glaces' on one of the 'River Cottage' series from the UK and have been wanting to try them ever since!

Just cooked my chestnuts and they are lovely. Will be using them in a veg stifry with the Silverbeat and some roasted Sprouts with garlic.
Another awesome box, Well done Hillary and Barny.
