Chestnuts, Dried

(Chestnuts, Dried)  Dried and peeled chestnuts are sold in bulk in specialty food stores and coops.  They are an excellent way of having chestnuts all year long, and when you are adding chestnuts to a recipe.  Boiled (reconstituted) chestnuts are also good to eat, and they are generally sweeter than the roasted chestnuts in the shell.  In recent years, we have found that the quality of the chestnuts in the shell has been going down with many being moldy; the dried chestnuts do not have this problem. When the dried chestnuts are boiled, most of the dark brown husk that remains on the chestnuts (see photo) will come off.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
