#6 of 10 Forgotten Winter Fruits and Veggies

Chestnuts

The fruits of chestnut trees produce a holiday favorite that is only in season for a brief time each winter (from approximately October–December). They're a good source of vitamin C, but more importantly, they bring a subtly sweet, nutty flavor to a variety of vegetables and breads. Fresh chestnuts may be tricky to find, so try bottled varieties or visit specialty grocery stores. 

Try these chestnut recipes: 
• Chestnut Soup
• Chestnut-Fig Stuffing
• Apple, Sage, and Chestnut Stuffing
