Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire..

It’s a little bit late in the season, but that’s not stopping me from loving roasted chestnuts!  There’s so many ways to buy them in Japan – fresh, roasted, peeled, or made into pastries.  It’s one of my favorite snacks despite being mildly frustrating at times.  Luckily, the Japanese seem to have found a solution for a tricky shell!  I’m not sure what their trick is so if you know, please enlighten me!

When you buy roasted chestnuts in Japan, they give you this little plastic tool that helps you crack the shell and dig out the yummy part.  I love it!!

  1. how do you work the little plastic thing!?

    daniel (chef) made this chestnut soup which was super yummy! no clue what went in but i love it and i usually don’t fancy chestnut flavored anything!!

    p.s. i tagged your in the quiz if you’d like to give it a go! :)

    • it’s really clever! you use the serrated side to cut open the shell and then you scoop it up with the “spoon” side! It really increased my efficiency :) haha

      wait – daniel made a chestnut soup for xmas dinner too i think? or am i imagining it?
