Probably one of the first foods eaten by man, the chestnut dates back to prehistoric times. "The Christmas Song" established it as an endearing holiday treat in 20th century America. Yet in Europe, Asia, and Africa, chestnuts often substitute for potatoes in everyday dishes. Chestnuts do add a festive flavor served straight from the oven or fireplace, but you can make use of this winter crop with a plethora of chestnut recipes, both savory and sweet.
