It’s autumn. Time flies indeed.
Just before I felt so hot and humid but now feel chilly…!
In Autumn, there are a lot of treats. One of them is a chestnut.
In my house there is a chestnut tree but for 2 years this area had been abandoned so the chestnuts are very small and not grown well. I need to start taking care of it in the near future.
This year, however, I visited a super grandma-like in Inashiki-city and luckily I got a lot of chestnuts from her 🙂
Her chestnuts were perfectly matured and large.
Chestnuts skins are so hard. When I peeled off their skins, my nails and fingers were pretty painful 😀
I have not cooked them but I got a really yummy lunch from the super grandma-like.
Chestnuts are used like cooked rice and Miso Soup etc.
Above the photo is cooked rice called “Takikomi Gohan” in Japanese. The super grandma-like cooked for me 🙂
Chestnuts and other vegetables were in it and its taste was surely so yummy!
Next year I hope to get chestnuts in my garden and you will be able to try them 😉
