Chestnuts Roasting

I tried chestnuts for the first time ever the other day. I found a vendor who was roasting them on the street corner. (Have I said how much I love street food?) I got a half kilo for 6 yuan (about 85 cents). They were surprisingly starchy - like potatoes - & a little bit sweet. A tasty afternoon snack.

Never had roasted chestnuts??? We could get them on the street corners in NYC. Yummy! Those were the good old days! Actually we roasted them in our fireplace in Phoenix in the winter, too!

Crazy huh? I've always heard of them in all those Christmas songs, but never actually ate them before.
