Careful how you store sweet chestnuts

sweet chestnuts Oct 09

See the photo above – some of the sweet chestnuts I picked wild in September. They had been stored in a plastic box. Not such a grand idea. See the mould growing on them. Fortunately we discovered it in time. All saved but it could have been a disaster, especially as the sweet chestnuts are a key ingredient of the main course of our self-sufficient Xmas dinner I am planning.

Plastic box ? Nooooooooo

You were lucky to save them ! They need plenty of air circulation when storing them!

Lucky you eh ?
