I was delighted to see Terry and Christine Peel's Featherdale Chestnuts stall at the Capital Region Farmer's Markets last weekend. The Peels visit the markets from Batlow, NSW, selling chestnuts grown on 25 year old trees on their property.
Chestnuts Australia Inc. are working actively to promote the Australian chestnut season and better educate consumers on how to cook chestnuts. Although chestnuts are thought of as European produce, Australia has a booming chestnut industry, producing approximately 1,200 tonnes a year, the majority of which comes from North East Victoria. For more information about chestnuts and how to cook with them, visit the Chestnuts Australia Inc. recipe pages.
Good Things in season and ripe for the market basket each month.
