Staying Warm

Mmm. Chestnuts roasting on the woodstove. One of my favorite ways to stay warm. (no woodstove? While I can't vouch for them, there are plenty of recipes for roasting chestnuts in the oven, too) Especially on a day like this one a few weeks ago:

    I've been craving warming foods - maybe its the 20*F temperature drop over this week? Chestnuts, I've never really had them (I don't think - at least not much).... how would you describe the flavor?


    Hmm. That's a tough one. You definitely have to roast them until they pop, and are tender..otherwise they can taste a bit bitter (they shouldn't be crunchy when they're done). They taste sweet when done right, vaguely nutty (almost lychee-like, but not that honey-sweet).

    Wow--they're hard to describe! Delicious, though, in my estimation :-)
