An Ode to Chestnuts
Fallen from the chestnut tree
Laying on the ground for me
I warm them up and they crack open wide
Then I eat up the hidden sweetness inside
As polished as wood, as dark as mahogany, chestnuts are the perfect hearty ingredient. Once, a prickly concor, now the secret ingredient to make your winter dishes come to life. Roast them, steam them, or puree them for a sweet, nutty addition to any meal.
