I have to admit that until I got to Baia Mare I didn’t eat chestnuts. 🙂 In recent years they have also appeared in supermarkets, but years ago you couldn’t find much of that in the store. Meanwhile, the chestnuts from Maramureș exist only with the name and the festival from September.
There are two ways to prepare edible chestnuts, we boil them or bake them in the oven or on the stove. 🙂 By-the-way, those from Brasov trees are good only for decorations. 🙂
I tried both ways, the baked ones are better but if you don’t eat them quickly, they turn into white weapons. :))) They look similar to boiled white potatoes, only with a different taste.
See here all the disasters in the kitchen.
