Two for Tuesday: Chestnuts

Chestnuts remind me of my grandma.  She liked to roast them at Christmas.  I like to get the packets of cooked chestnuts and eat them as a snack.  I also made a simple dish of cooked chestnuts and Brussels sprouts with a dressing of olive oil and vinegar.  They were delicious.

If you’d like your chestnuts sweet, try these candied chestnuts from Italy confectioner Vergani.
