Once almost forgotten, Chestnut groves can once again be found throughout the Midwest. Earthy Delights is proud to work with chestnut farmers from Michigan and Ohio who grow, harvest, process and peel their own chestnuts.  Each fall, Earthy Delights offers fresh Midwestern-grown chestnuts, available September - December.

Interest in these sweet, tasty nuts has been growing steadily in recent years as fresh American-grown chestnuts have become readily available. While chestnuts have never gone out of style in Europe and Asia, more and more Americans are coming to appreciate their unique flavor and texture.

Unlike other nuts, fresh chestnuts don't store well for long periods. Though frozen, candied and preserved chestnuts are available all year, fresh chestnuts are one of those wonderful seasonal treats that we can only enjoy for a brief few weeks each fall. 
 
Why Midwestern-grown Chestnuts?
 
We think you'll find Midwestern chestnuts to be the freshest, sweetest & tastiest chestnuts you've ever eaten.
 
Just listen to what one of our customers had to say:
"WOW - What a difference 'Made in America' makes to taste, tenderness, sweetness, nuttiness and ease in preparation.
 
The chestnuts arrived yesterday and we had some for dinner last night... Please consider this note to be a sincere "Thank You". I have used both Italian and Chinese nuts and they simply do not compare. They were sweet as candy."

Recipes

Wild and "Tame" Rice with Chestnuts
Here's a recipe that is not only great for the holidays, but is just as pleasing and satisfying at any time of the year. It's inspired by a traditional Japanese rice dish, Kuri Gohan (literally, rice with chestnuts), but with the addition of North American wild rice. The nutty flavor and chewy texture of wild rice really adds a new dimension to the dish. While it makes a wonderful side dish with just about any meal, it would also work very well as a stuffing for turkey or a roasting chicken.

If you're entertaining a crowd, just double the recipe up and don't worry about leftovers - this delicious rice dish re-heats exceptionally well.

Chestnuts and Brussels Sprouts
This is a variation on a classic Italian recipe, although they like to roast them. Boiling them produces a softer chestnut that goes well with the Brussels sprouts. Chestnuts go very well with pork, turkey and goose.

Using ready-to-eat chestnuts, cuts the cooking time significantly, which allows you to have this on the table quickly.

Beef and Guinness Casserole with Chestnuts
Though this dish is called a "casserole," it's really more of a stew. Made rich and savory with plenty of beef stock, the flavor is rounded out by the addition of Guinness Stout and the mellow sweetness of chestnuts.

Call it what you will, it's good for you and tastes good too.
