Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...Traditional fresh chestnuts. Everyone loves that delicious taste and unforgettable smell of fresh roasting chestnuts. These are the largest chestnuts grown, and are flown in from Italy.
***Approximately 20-25 in a pound***
To help preserve their freshness, your bag might arrive with little holes punched in them. This is normal and is done only to keep them fresh.
Chestnuts have a very high moisture content, and are extremely perishable. They must be stored under refrigeration in as close to freezing temperatures as possible. It is also recommended that they are stored with as high humidity as possible. If stored in this manner, they can stay fresh for a couple of weeks. We recommend storing the nuts in perforated plastic bags, or solid plastic bags that you've put some holes in. Place a damp paper towel in with them. To cook chestnuts, you can boil them or roast them. When roasting, cut a small slit in the chestnut to prevent them from exploding during the roasting process. Bake in the oven at 425 for 10-15 minutes or until the outer skin begins to peel back. You can also cook on the stove top or over an open flame.

“My husband is from Cleveland and we always had fresh chestnuts during the holidays; but when we moved to Texas, it has been impossible to find fresh chestnuts. Thank God I found this website. I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived so quickly, and delighted when we tasted how fresh everything is. By the way, thank you for the turkish figs, both my husband and I enjoyed them very much. I will be adding them in our next order:)”

“OK so I got my Chestnuts a couple of days ago and just roasted some today. WOW what a great taste these guys have. I roasted them in the oven at 425 for 15 minutes after cutting a long slit in them and simmering (bring to a simmer and then drain) them in water in a sauce pan with a little salt. The next batch will be roasted on New Years Eve. Happy New Year!”

“I bought these around Christmas time to make stuffing. Since I moved back to an area that only offers chestnuts in the store in the early fall, I needed to find them somewhere -- or risk disappointing my husband. These were fresher, a little larger, toasted evenly, and there weren't as many "bad ones" that wouldn't peel.”
