Buy Fall Chestnuts Online

Great gift idea:
Buy a fun Christmas mug, fill with chestnuts and a card with these instructions on how to roast them in the oven:

Things You’ll Need:

* Chestnuts
* Salt
* Baking Sheets
* Paring Knives
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Clean off chestnuts.
Use a sharp paring knife to cut an X into one side of each chestnut, or prick chestnuts with a fork to allow steam to escape.
Arrange chestnuts on a baking sheet or in a shallow pan, with the cut or pricked sides up.
Roast in oven for 15 to 25 minutes, or until chestnuts are tender and easy to peel.
Peel the nuts when they are cool enough to handle, and enjoy.

Here are some great looking Christmas mugs to fill with chestnuts for gift giving:
