  1. Hmmm, sprouts with chetnuts – sounds delicious. And the vacuum packed chestnuts are so easy and reasonably tasty.

    There were some sweet chestnut trees in Shropshire nearby to where I went to college – only thing was they were a bit small in comparison to the shop bought ones. Are there any sweet cheestnut trees in Yorkshire? Are we too far north?
