Roast chestnuts

Postby gardenlaw » Sun Dec 20, 2009 10:24 am

Sitting in front of a blazing log fire roasting chestnuts on an old shovel with snow falling outside. Watching "Its a Wonderful Life" on the TV Perfect. Could anything be better for this Christmas week?

Snow, good food and "It's a wonderful life" one of our favourite films. No, nothing could be more perfect. :D Well apart from the fact we are not by an open fire. :lol: Lucky you. :D

The holidays really are here now and it's beautiful! Happy Christmas Gardenlaw and everyone, I hope your holiday time is wonderful. :)

The fire looks lovely Will, all warm and cosy. A gas fire's not quite the same is it?
A happy Christmas to Gardenlaw and everyone. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

There's definitely nothing like an open fire, I'm not even as keen on those wood burners even though they are better than a gas fire. I would love to chop wood in the morning and make a fire...how romantic! :D

Happy Christmas apples, hope you have a wonderful time. :) If you have any chocolates you don't want you know I'll eat them...just pass them down the wire. :wink:

Happy Christmas Will. I hope you have a wonderful time too. I'll pass the chocolates I don't want down the wire, then I'll know they've gone to a good home. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

I once worked in a garden with a large chestnut wood in the back where we would have one big fire in a clearing each year – after a couple of years the surrounding trees were dropping the biggest nuts I've ever seen – there was an open fire in my local at that time and they went down exceedingly well. I would also make Mont Blanc with them... take off the shells and simmer nuts in milk with a little vanilla in it – then peel off the skins and push trough a sieve onto a plate and then gently cover the mound with whipped vanilla flavoured cream and maybe grate a little chocolate on top – very lovely!
