It's that time of year for chestnuts and roasting fires. On one of our fairest fall days, nut lovers from around Tompkins County attended the "Nut Bonanza" at Twisted Tree Farm in Spencer. Hands on activities, nut nursery items and information on nut growing and processing were on display.
Hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts and heartnuts grow well here in our Hardiness Zone 5 area and complement fruit plantings in the home orchard.
Roasting chestnuts is easy, but take care when scoring the nuts prior to roasting them. They can roll under your knife.
