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.
