What are chestnuts?
Chestnuts are hard-skinned nuts that are very popular in Europe, USA, Asia, and middle eastern counties. Chestnuts are also called Marroni, Marrons, Kestane, Castañas, Kastanien, Châtaignes, and Castagne in Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Italy, and other European countries. Roasted marroni or chestnuts are a very popular European street food in the winter. We buy the warm roasted chestnuts from the street vendors here in Europe. The raw chestnuts can be roasted or cooked to use in many dishes such as hummus, truffles, chocolate spread, cardamom chestnut milk, cakes, cookies, and soups. Read more about them here
