    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    Submitted for Zaar World Tour 2005. I LOVE chestnuts. On the streets of New York City during the winter vendors roast them on the street and you can buy warm and fragrant little bags of them to keep your hands warm and tummy full while window shopping. Fond memories of Christmas in New York, but this particular recipe is a Christmas in Austria recipe (from a cookbook of countries along the Danube). You can serve them with crown roast of pork (I wouldn't, but then I'm a vegetarian). Have not tried this recipe yet.

      This recipe is fantastic and it was the first to go in the new cookbook I've just started, titled "Mrs B's Christmas Cooking". Although it strikes me as 'special food' worthy of any special occassion, this is easy to make and there's no need to wait for Christmas to have this!
