I was going to try, but those spines poke right through my leather gloves! They’re really stiff and sharp.
I adore roasted chestnuts !
Thank you, Anna! I was going to try that, but taking the hulls off is really painful!
I can imagine! (Effectively, I buy them ready to roast!)
Fabulous picture! In France people make a kind of sweet paste out of chestnuts, children love it and some adults too, more than they should 😉 Fortunately here we love them roasted. Maybe if you dry the hulls a little in the oven they will come off more easily, just an idea. It sounds really tough.
Maybe I will try that after my fingers heal 🙂
😦 I am so sorry
They look like something from outer space…I think one the husk dries they’re much easier to get to them…
I am trying to spy on the squirrels to see how they do it.
I love this!
Thank you, Rajiv!
These chestnuts look like some forest creatures peeking out from their coats. So cute!
When Bob brought me this sackfull of chestnuts, I thought of tribbles. (In the ’60s, there was an American sci-fi TV program, Star Trek, and in one episode called “The Trouble with Tribbles,” the ship was infested with these cute, but extremely prolific, furball critters called tribbles.)
Haha, the tribbles 🙂 Sure:)
Lovely photo. I have not seen them in live!
