Around the middle of October chestnuts are everywhere. I don’t mean in the supermarkets at 6€ per kilo, but along the roadside for free. Most of them get squished by car and tractor tyres, but if you’re quick you can collect as many as you want. Roger has enjoyed cooking them with his chestnut pan, but I’ve frozen loads whole to cook with another time. Today I made a chestnut, mushroom and cranberry loaf, which was delicious. I’ll post the recipe later. Word of warning – don’t try collecting chestnuts wearing flip flops, those spikes flippin hurt!!!
