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.

“Wow, GREAT Service, GREAT Products. My order was put in at 5:30pm and on my doorstep less then 24 hours later. I spent weeks looking before I found what I needed at "Nuts Online". From now on you are the first. THANK YOU”

“I've had chestnuts all my life during the holidays, but they seem to be harder to find - at least good ones. I went on line the Friday before Thanksgiving and I took a shot, I ordered chestnuts on line (crazy, but I had nothing to lose). I received my order the very next Monday before the holiday. I had to try them. A one pound bag had approx. 25 nuts, I cooked them like I always do and to my surprize and pleasure, I was able to peel (outside and inside skin) with very little effort, and the chestnuts were great. Anybody who eats chestnuts knows that if you get all the nuts shelled without losing any it's quite an accomplishment in the chestnut eating world. I would just like to say thanks to nutsonline for making my holiday special again. Now I know I have a source for chestnuts I can count on in the future. cc ”

“my chestnuts arrived yesterday. I already had the oven preheated. I was born in the east, and have missed this treat for years. I'm ashamed to admit that I ate an entire pound by myself! the ABSOLUTE best I've ever had! thanks so much for your product and the prompt delivery. Sincerely, KC stroup”

“I has been well over 20 years since I moved from Pittsburgh and into Florida. That long since I have had chestnuts. I have been searching for 8 years. I have finally ended my search. Talk about prompt delivery. They arrived the day you said they would. Good job. They are as big and pretty as I remember them. I can't wait to cook some up and enjoy them. As soon as I do, I will be back with another great testimonial. ”

“Dear Friends at Nuts Online,
Received the chestnuts and fried peas in record time. Thank you so much!
I'm impressed with your professionalism and great service.
I'm looking forward to ordering again soon since chestnuts are really hard to find in Oklahoma and they are really hard to find as fresh as these at such a fair price!
I'll be keeping your company in mind for gift-giving.
If you ever decided to offer the smaller Italian type chestnuts, please let me know.
Keep up the great work! I'm sending your information to my friends and family members.

“You saved our day!! We had a party and chestnuts were the main character (couldn't find at the local supermarket). It was our first time buying food online (little scared). However, they were of an excellent quality and everybody loved them. Also delivery time worked perfectly.

“Sorry didn't reply right away -was very busy trying each of baggies with goodies,but you know how it is -once you try you can't just stop it. It's so yummy! So, I need to go ... go nuts! But, don't worry, you will hear from me again very soon. Thanks so much - for nuts and service!”

“The testimonials you read on this Website are absolutely true! I placed an order on late Wednesday afternoon for chestnuts and had my nuts on Friday. It is almost unbelievable. One bit of information that is often left out of the testimonials is the packaging Nuts Online uses. They must be specially made. The chestnuts are in a bag with an air vent. The raw peanuts in shell come in a black bag. Clearly, this is done to protect freshness and quality of the various items, each needing its own individual protection. And the quality of every item I ordered is superb, top notch, Grade A all the way. I am so glad I came upon your Website and will be ordering again very soon! Thank you all.”

“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.”
