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!!
