Chestnuts come but once a year, as a seasonal treat in our Christmas bumper veg bags.
How to store your chestnuts:
Chestnuts don’t have a very long shelf life becasue they have a higher water content than most nuts, so best to use them as soon as you can. They will keep for about a week at room temperature but to make sure they stay fresh we advise you store in the fridge in a plastic bag with holes in it so it can breathe. They should keep in the fridge for 2 – 3 weeks.
We've compiled a bunch of recipes to insoire you to make the most of these delicious nuts over the festive season
