When I used to live in China, there was a chestnut stand on almost every street corner. And I think it took me a few months to realize that amazing cinnamon smell was actually chestnuts. Little coals of warmth that tasted like Autumn.
I got these chestnuts in the supermarket for a pound and had everything else already in the kitchen/garden. The only difficulty is making sure you don’t cut yourself scoring the shell so it’s probably better if you have access to a sharp paring knife.
