Chestnuts

.
It is October, the chestnuts season! Starchy, sweet, rich in flavor, chestnuts are popular edible nuts of the northern hemisphere origin. The nuts are native to the mountainous forests of China, Japan, Europe, and North America. Botanically, they belong to the beech or Fagaceae family. The name “chestnut” is derived from an earlier English term “chestnut”, which descends from the Latin name chosen for the genus, Castanea.
Chestnuts, unlike other nuts and seeds, are relatively low in calories and fats. Nonetheless, they are rich sources of minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients that immensely benefit health.
Chestnuts are cool season crops; available in the markets from October through March, peaking in December.
Chestnuts are pleasantly sweet and flavorful. In the olden times, the native Americans treated chestnuts as their staple foods, employed them much like modern-day potatoes.
There are many ways to eat the chestnuts. The fruit can be peeled and eaten even raw! Another way of eating the chestnuts is roasting. Can be also dried and milled into flour. The flour can be light beige. It can be used to prepare bread, cakes and other dishes.
