I’ve been watching a lot of Hallmark Christmas movies (one of my favorite fall and winter pastimes) and started thinking about roasted chestnuts. They always look so good on TV. Did you know that only a few groves in California and the Pacific Northwest escaped blight in the 21st century, so the majority of chestnuts consumed in the United States come from China, Korea and Italy? Chestnuts grow on trees and take about three years to produce fruit. Cost per pound in the U.S. in 2018 was $2 to $5 (organic nuts can be much pricier – about $16.50 per pound). Know most of the chestnuts you see around Idaho County are horse chestnuts and are not edible.
