Robbie’s Produce Tip Featuring: Italian Chestnuts

Fresh Italian Chestnuts

Choose firm and glossy nuts with free of blemish skin

  • They should feel heavy for their size
  • Avoid nuts that rattle in the shell, that’s an indication that the nut is drying out
  • Once peeled, keep them in a cool, dry place and use within one week
  • Fresh chestnuts can be frozen whole in their shells up to 4 months
