Early Back Woods
Cheethams Park & Nature Reserve
Now is the ideal time to go out collecting our Sweet Chestnuts. As the October winds blow there will plenty falling from above. Make sure your head is safe.... I had one spike my bald pate last year ha!
I love these roasted , I simply slit the skin with a knife as they explode if you don't and roast them in a hot oven..... I can then sit there peeling back the skins and eat the softened nut within.
I picked about 10-12 pound in weight last week and have them in the shed ready for when needed.
