Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire

taste like crap.

Winter brings the roasted chestnuts to the street vendor carts. I've always wanted to try them and I finally did last Sunday.

Wow was I disappointed.

The shells slip off easily to reveal the nut flesh.

The nuts themselves are very soft and taste almost like a bean/legume - they are not nutty.

The best thing I can say about the experience is at least I've tried them.
